A bad single mother raises a selfish daughter who, to get attention, almost commits second-hand genocide and grows into a woman who almost commits genocide again.

Following the drama of several relationships, especially a serial-dater.

Understated but riveting; recommended. I wonder if there's a decent quality copy out there.

  • Trailer
  • Inappropriately-rated, this doesn't have much of anything close to R-rated, and what came close could have been adjusted slightly without changing anything. It's odd they didn't lean into that R-rating.

The removal of the special immunity on a young man triggers a series of events which summons his father for help.
