Netflix is back at it with another terrifying but true documentary about the shocking case of infertility specialist Dr Donald Cline. During the 1970’s and 80’s, he had switched the donor sperm of random sperm donors as well as couples who just sent in their samples for a chance at a family of their own with his own sperm, and breaching the trust of his patients had become the father of over 50 children. The worst part is, Cline is still out there and unpunished due to the nature of what he did not breaking any laws. This documentary sets out to try and find justice for everything Cline did.
Our Father seems to be aiming for a detective-documentary following Jacoba Ballard. One of the many children who share Dr Cline as a father and getting into contact with many of the other people who are linked to this story. It was, after all, Jacoba who discovered the scam, made it public and found out just how deep and dark this rabbit hole goes.
Our Father releases on Netflix May 11th.
