Jason Freeman was in high school when his father pulled over to the side of the highway, parked his car and blew his brains out. Jason didn’t know much about his father; his parents split up when he was a small boy, and he had been raised by a loving mother and her new husband. His father’s suicide provoked questions, and Jason soon learned his father’s real name: Charles Manson, Jr. This film chronicles Jason’s relationship with his infamous grandfather. Using the narrative of Jason’s understanding of his family bloodline, the film tells the story of his coming to terms with his place in the Manson family.
