Looking into the Templet family's history and background, with allegations of abuse, kidnapping and surveillance and seeing what led to Anthony killing his father.

Netflix teased: “Anthony Templet shot his father and never denied it. But why he did is a complex question with profound implications that go far beyond one family.

"This three-episode documentary series explores the psyche of Anthony leading up to the events of June 3, 2019 and the journey of his mental and emotional aftermath.”

The story doesn't look at who did it, but rather the why of the crime and what led Anthony to make such a drastic decision.

The shooting occurred after an argument between father and son in their Louisiana home. After calling 911 and reporting himself as the shooter, to this day Anthony has never denied the crime but the events leading up to it are chilling.

With the trailer now released, it only adds more intrigue as it starts with a woman confessing: "The scariest thing about Anthony is he’s just kind of like a blank slate. I don’t know if he has empathy.”

Another woman says: "He died at the hands of his own son."

While an investigating officer said: "He said his father physically attacked him – I did not see any bruising or injuries to Anthony."

But as the tone of the trailer changes, Anthony himself appears saying: "I shouldn’t be charged with anything because I didn’t do anything wrong."
