Doreen Whitlock was a woman who suffered from postpartum depression. Overcome with despair, she attempted to kill herself and her four sons with a car bomb. Only she and her son Adam survived.

Her husband's psychological abuse was a contributor to her going over the edge.


  • Whitlock is based on Andrea Yates, who drowned her five children while suffering from postpartum psychosis. While she was convicted of murder, her conviction was overturned when it was revealed a psychiatrist gave false testimony. She was later acquitted by reason of insanity.
