Brendan’s Alternate Tagline: WHAT THE EVERLOVING F—?!
Quick synopsis: Jan Broberg was sexually molested by a family friend. You will meet her and a string of some of the dumbest human beings you have ever seen.
Fun Fact Non-History People Will Like: She was kidnapped more than once. By the same guy.
Fun Fact for History Nerds: “It’s just kid’s stuff.” Yeah, when you get to this part just try not to scream at the TV.
My Take: Oh. My. God.
Here’s a fun game. Try and guess within the first ten minutes who you will want to punch the most other than the disgusting child molester. You will be AMAZED how quickly that list grows.
I audibly cursed at the TV at least 3 times. I did not believe what I was hearing. I legitimately thought this may be some sort of dark spoof of the true crime drama.
It is not. This happened. All of it. And you will want to commit murder. A lot of murder.
Jan Broberg should not be able to even function as a human being with what she went through and how many people let her down (including the two people who never should have let it happen). Instead, she somehow helped write a book and do lectures on this. Oh, and wait until the courtroom scene at the end with her molester. She’s a badass.
Ever hear someone say that being “into” children is just their “thing”? Have fun feeling super gross!
Verdict: Want to rage? Watch this. You will rage.
