The streaming service is unveiling a feature-length exploration of a man who became a viral sensation in 2013, and the deadly events that followed.
After a video of him detailing the incident was shared online, Lawrence was hailed a hero and received instant fame. Chat shows hosts lined up to interview him, and musicians, including Justin Bieber, requested collaborations with him.
The trailer starts with the narration: “Have you heard about Kai, the hitchhiker hatchet hero? This dude went from heroic, beautiful person to wanted for murder.”
One interview subject remarks: “If you’re going to glorify someone, you better know who you glorify.”
Users will also be happy to learn the documentary is a brisk 90-minute film as opposed to a multi-episode series.
The official synopsis reads: “This shocking documentary chronicles a happy-go-lucky nomad’s ascent to viral stardom and the steep downward spiral that resulted in his imprisonment.”
