Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne’s best friend, Andrew Bagby, was murdered by his ex-girlfriend after Bagby ended their volatile relationship. Shortly after she was arrested, the unstable ex-girlfriend announced she was pregnant with Andrew’s child. In an effort to memorialize Bagby for his unborn son, Kuenne picked up a video camera to interview friends and members of Bagby’s family. At first, “Dear Zachary” plays like the heart-wrenching tribute it was supposed to be. But then things go horribly, horribly wrong. Tragedy unfolds in real-time as we become intimately acquainted with Bagby’s memory and the members of his family.
