How does one live with the unbearable, when the worst has happened and the one to blame is yourself? Death of a Child is an exploration of the lives of parents who have caused their own children’s deaths. This film encompasses many different situations in life where tragedy hits and where someone is at fault. However, there is something about what these parents have done that seem to trigger a specific social rage and condemnation. Because what kind of parent forgets a baby in a car?
