It's a train wreck you can't stop watching.

This is for adults and older teens. You keep watching thinking how could it get worse - and it gets worse - but you can't look away. Compelling. Zero role-models. Topics that may be considered inappropriate: polygamy, drugs, alcohol, animal abuse, murder (not shown), suicide(not on screen), animal attack, swearing, sexual abuse.
