Raising a School Shooter

Lasse Barkfors & Frida Barkfors



As the disaster of yet another school shooting hits, some parents are faced with a brutal fact: their child was the one pulling the trigger. Jeff’s son Andy shot and killed two classmates and wounded thirteen other students when he was 15. Andy is serving 25-years-to-life in prison. Clarence’s son Nicholas killed his teacher and wounded another teacher in 1988 and is serving. Sue’s son Dylan was one of the two teenagers behind the Columbine Massacre in 1999. Dylan committed suicide. Through deeply personal stories the film explores guilt, denial, failure and responsibility, harassment, sorrow, friendship and love.
