What kind of person forgets their baby in a car?

DEATH OF A CHILD is an exploration of the lives of parents who have caused their own children’s deaths. What these parents have done seem to trigger a specific social rage and condemnation. Through the parents' personal testimonies the layers of their experiences are uncovered: how they are treated by the court system, the general public and the media, by their friends and family, their spouse – and finally and most importantly – by themselves. As one mother puts it: "I used to think I was this great mom, the glaring truth is that I was not."
