The teaser starts with some happy footage of Nick Brewer with his family. He’s shown as a father, husband, brother, and a good friend.

A question arises after all those: Is he a liar? We see Brewer hold a paper that reads “I abuse women” followed by one that has “At 5 million views I die” written on it.
