What is the documentary What Jennifer Did all about?

While mother Bich Ha Pan was dead, father Huei Hann Pan was alive but critically injured. As for Jennifer Pan, she had been left unharmed and tied up. After somehow managing to evade her trappings, she called 911 frantically. As the police began their investigation, there appeared to be more questions than answers. The Pan family had been an honest, generous, and hardworking one.

But when Jennifer’s words did not match the evidence and her actions, the police began suspecting her before eventually arresting her upon her confession and further proof. But why did she do it? Only for the money or the chance to be with Wong, the man she was obsessed with and forbidden from dating?

As details about the family’s dynamics and the past emerged, the police began delving deeper into Jennifer’s horrible crime—hiring contract killers to murder her own parents. A product of extreme tiger parenting, Jennifer had been forced towards excellence by her parents all her life, from back-to-back piano, flute, and figure skating lessons to attending no parties or dating boyfriends throughout college.

It had gone on long enough to turn Jennifer into a compulsive liar and manipulator, leading dual lives and lying about everything to her parents, simply for the sake of peace and sanity. But when such familial trauma can fester into something as rotten as slaughtering your own parents, it is worth thinking about while watching the haunting yet intriguing docufilm on April 10.
