I would definitely not say the documentary is for kids. It is aimed at adults and teens. It has some inappropriate talkings. The case is heartbreaking. The documentary is well explained but it was so sad to watch.

Truly disturbing but not that inappropriate...

The crime-documentary is definitely not for the faint of heart, but definitely not inappropriate. If your young teen child is into the crime/mystery genre, this is perfect for them, though, the storyline does get a bit disturbing. Language such as "f---ing", "s--t", and "hell" are used quite frequently in texts (don't act like your teenager doesn't know that "f--k" is a word). A wife messages her friend on how she desires sex, and that they're not having sex. A man announces that him and his wife had sex the night before she died. Though there is no violence at all, it is described on how the two toddlers and wife died. Overall, it is a very good crime movie that will have you on the edge of your seat, then it will make you cry..
