An incredibly shocking statistic exists in the United States, and that is that five parents are killed by their children each and every week. For most of us the idea of killing our own parents would be an unimaginable thought to conceive of but for Nathon Brooks this was his very plan. Back in 2013 Nathon was 14 years old, one night he walked into his parents bedroom and shot them both in the head while they slept.
It was clear that Nathon had every intention of killing his parents but incredibly both this mother and father survived.
I Shot My Parents is an incredible film which through interviews with Nathon and his family tries to gain some sort of understanding for his actions. We follow the incredible journey the Brooks family embark on as they come to terms with what their son did and attempt to understand it.
