The story of how police repeatedly allowed a serial murderer to slip through their fingers. Stephen Port date-raped and murdered four young gay men in East London within fifteen months and dumped all four bodies within a few hundred metres of each other. Yet Barking and Dagenham police failed to link the deaths, until weeks after the fourth one. The film tells the story through eyes of the families of Port\'s victims, unpicking how the police failed to properly investigate each of the deaths in turn. The police\'s assumptions that these young gay men had died from self-inflicted overdoses of chem-sex drugs allowed Port to continue raping and killing innocent young men. The film unravels Port\'s sinister character and modus operandi. Port was motivated by a desire to satisfy his lust for abusive drug fuelled sexual encounters. He found all his victims through gay dating and social media sites, using multiple online profiles. Barking and Dagenham police\'s failings have led to huge anger amongst the families of Port\'s victims. Some have accused the police of institutional homophobia, and asked if officers would have investigated more thoroughly, had four young women turned up dead within such a small radius. The Met police have referred themselves to the Independent Police Complaints Commission over their handling of the case and will not comment on specific allegations until the IPCC investigation is complete.

Maybe it was the cast of the Today Show crawling beneath barbed wire. Or that guy from your office who looks like Rambo on Facebook. But somewhere, somehow, you\'ve probably been exposed to the muddy, messy world of obstacle course racing. OCR is the fastest growing sport... ever. In 2016, an estimated 5 million people will pay to suffer through ice, fire, electricity, barbed wire, tear gas, mud and more. And the half-billion dollar question is... WHY? WHY-when the thrust of civilization has been to make life easier-are the masses suddenly paying for pain? It\'s a question we wanted to answer, so... we set off on a big, crazy, cinematic adventure! RISE OF THE SUFFERFESTS is the first feature documentary about the global obstacle course racing (OCR) phenomenon. The film explores the history of the sport, psychology behind it, personalities that drive it, and most importantly, asks what it says about the world we\'re living in. To help shed light on the phenomenon, investigative journalist Scott Keneally enlists a motley crew of athletes and insiders from the cultish OCR community, as well as a broad range of notable experts - Morgan Spurlock, Laird Hamilton, Tim Ferriss, Hanna Rosin, AJ Jacobs and Dr. Jean Twenge, to name a few. The self-proclaimed beta-male also dives deep into the crucible, training up and tackling some of the world\'s most brutal sufferfests. Far from just a movie about mud, it\'s a film about modern life... and the journey of a \"just-enougher\" to embrace the suck and STFU in the face of fatherhood.
