A new teaser trailer for the upcoming docudrama, ‘Soaked in Bleach,’ which offers a definitive examination of the death of beloved Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, has been released from is production companies, A Suburban Hitchhiker and Daredevil Films. The film is set to be released in remembrance of the 20-year anniversary of the singer’s death, after his body was found on April 8, 1994 in his Seattle home.

The following synopsis has been released for the film:

‘Soaked in Bleach’ reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain’s death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain’s death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff’s detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.

‘Soaked in Bleach,’ which derives its name from Nirvana’s 1989 debut album, ‘Bleach,’ was directed by Benjamin Statler. The helmer also co-wrote the drama with Donnie Eichar and Richard Middleton. The movie stars ‘Shark Night 3D’ actor Tyler Bryan as Cobain, Sarah Scott as Love, Sophia Markov as the couple’s daughter, frances Bean Cobain, and Daniel Roebuck as Grant.
