On the evening of Nov. 5, 2001, Dr. Andrew Bagby was murdered in a parking lot in western Pennsylvania. The prime suspect, his ex- girlfriend Dr. Shirley Turner, promptly fled the United States for St. Johns, Newfoundland -- where she announced that she was pregnant with Andrew's child. She named the little boy Zachary. Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne, Andrew's childhood friend, originally began this film as a way for little Zachary to learn about his father -- until Shirley Turner, whom Canada allowed to walk free on bail while awaiting extradition to the United States, took matters into her own hands....

Shocking and moving, this documentary shows both the good and bad side of humanity. You will curse the Canadian justice system for showing no concern for human life. You will care for the grandparents who just want to love their grandson in safety. The portrayal of some people can be manipulative and the editing is a bit too much at times, but watching it is a must.
