It begins with the 1974 kidnapping of 12-year-old Jan Broberg by a neighbor, Robert Berchtold, who tells her parents that he is taking Broberg horseback riding and then proceeds to drug her, badly fake their joint demise, and take her to Mexico.

From there, things spiral out in ways so horrifying and bizarre that it’s difficult to describe them: There is sexual blackmail, arson, a coterie of overly trusting nuns, a purchased water park, and an intricate plot involving aliens, the latter being a tale peddled to Broberg by Berchtold to justify his rape of her.

The viewer knows from the outset that Broberg makes it out alive—now 56 years old, she does much of the narration herself. Her parents, Bob and Mary Ann, meanwhile take turns attempting to explain their repeated lack of intervention, from allowing Berchtold to spend months sleeping in their daughter’s bed (for therapeutic reasons, he insisted), to refusing to believe that Jan’s eventual kidnapping was, in fact, a kidnapping at all, to the brutal horrors that come after the Mexico chapter.
