Shortly after his best friend, Dr. Andrew Bagby, was slain by jealous ex-girlfriend Dr. Shirley Turner, filmmaker Kurt Kuenne was shocked to learn that Turner was pregnant with Bagby's unborn child. Hoping to create a film that would serve as both a memorial to Bagby and an introduction to the father the boy would never know, Kuenne quickly began production on a film celebrating the life of his late friend. Traveling across the entire continental United States, Kuenne made it his personal mission to interview everyone who had ever known his best friend so their memories would be captured on camera before they faded. Meanwhile, upon learning that Turner had fled to Newfoundland, Bagby's devastated parents uprooted their entire lives and relocated to the easternmost providence of Canada in order to fight for the future of their newborn grandson, Zachary. During the production, however, the Canadian government freed Turner on bail as she awaited extradition to the United States. Unfortunately, during that crucial time, the situation took a turn for the worse -- a turn that could have been prevented had the Canadian justice system heeded all the warning signs.

Director Kurt Kuenne's bestfriend and leading man in all his films in his childhood Andrew Bagby is murdered in cold blood by a jealous and unstable ex-lover. Kurt Kuenne's world is shattered. He decides to make a film about his bestfriend from the people who knew him best and while making the film he discovers that the murder suspect who was currently in jail waiting to be extradited to the U.S. is pregnant with Andrew Bagby's child. Suddenly his film became a Letter to Andrew's unborn child about how great a man his father was. From Saratoga California he journeys across America to Eastern Canada interviewing every person who knew Andrew along the way. He meets up in Canada where Andrew Bagby's parents David and Kathleen have made a new home to see through the conviction of Andrew's ex lover Dr. Kathleen Turner. Through the warped and ridiculous governing of the local Canadian government they see the woman who murdered their son walk free with Andrew's unborn baby. This documentary shows the determination, the love, and courage of David and Kathleen Bagby as they attempt to create a relationship with a woman who murdered their only son in hopes to meet their Grand Son Zachary. Very raw and emotional Dear Zachary shakes the faith and belief in not only their religion but also in a so called Justice system. Unorthodox documentary editing, touching testimonials from friends and family plus emotional narration by Kuenne makes Dear Zachary a film that every person should see. The outcome will shock you and haunt you for sometime.

Dear Zachary is an incredible movie. I purchased one for myself. It was so moving that I purchased two more for different friends. I will never forget the journey of Kurt Kuenne and his extended family, the Babgy's.

Prepare to be enraged and sobbing by the end. The kind of film that sticks with you a month after seeing it. It is very well done but a heart wrenching story to be sure.

This documentary left me in awe. I was so emotionally charged and enfuriated by the end of it that I am writing my own reform letter to the Canadian judicial system. That poor family
