As destiny would have it, Netflix has just released a new documentary with a premise that seems like it’s derived from some forgettable comedy flick, but upon further investigation reveals itself to be equal parts weird, disturbing, and frustrating. The film is Blumhouse’s Our Father, which is now streaming.

What if your father wasn’t your biological father, and your actual biological father was your mom’s former fertility doctor instead? This is the shocking question at the heart of the new documentary Our Father, which attempts to uncover the truth behind one fertility clinic scandal that resulted in nearly 100 (and counting!) babies coming from the same father.

The 97-minute documentary exposes the truth behind the sordid story of a fertility doctor impregnating his unknowing patients with his own sperm. The story is told by the children, who discovered the dark secret behind their lineage themselves, and by the women who were impregnated without consent. Throughout the retelling, you’ll be shocked as to how far the consequences of one man’s actions reach and by the lengths he will go to try and bury the truth.

The documentary does stay true to its commitment of exploring the why behind it all, which takes the narrative to interesting discussions of topics related to sex, religion, race, and gender. It’s disturbing to see a crime so unusually specific actually done onto unaware innocents, but the documentary is also quite gripping. You keep watch just to see how deep the rabbit hole goes—just a warning: it goes hella’ deep.

Our Father is now streaming on Netflix.
