Trailer for The Children Next Door.

Docu recounts the fear and pain of domestic violence through the eyes of a child. This hard-hitting film, shot in Tennessee, takes us on a young family's journey to overcome years of experiencing childhood domestic violence and the atrocity of one shocking incident that both shattered and shaped their lives. After a ten-year marriage plagued by waves of mounting brutality, Brad Waldroup's dreaded outbursts culminated one horrific day, October 13, 2006, when Brad attacked his wife Penny with a gun and machete and murdered her best friend, all in front of their four young children. The story opens five-and-a-half-years later as the family continues to struggle with deep psychic wounds. Within three short months, a startling turn of events forces Chelsea, the oldest child, and her mother to face some tough truths about the past and brace themselves for a future of possibilities.
