The documentary will feature interviews with individuals closely connected to the case, as well as those who knew the perpetrator, 22-year-old Jake Davison. It aims to shed light on a series of systemic failures that allowed an unstable individual, already known to the police, to retain legal possession of a firearm.

In addition to examining the events leading up to the attack, the film will explore Jake Davison’s life prior to the shooting. His “digital legacy,” consisting of videos and social media posts, will be scrutinised. Notably, Davison had been drawn to the “Incel” movement—an ideology characterised by deep misogyny and linked to violent extremism.
