Save this for the next time you just need to let it all out.

Sometimes when life gives you lemons, you just need to cry it out. And what better way to do so than open up Netflix and choose some emotional drama to get an escape and let your emotions flow.

Although not all films and shows are equally deep and emotional, we all know how one "kill the dog" move can ruin a perception of a movie.

If you are on a lookout for raw emotion and touching drama, check out this list. Stock up on paper tissues, you will need them!

After Life

Despite officially staying in the comedy genre, After Life as the show speaks a lot on death, grief and mental issues.

Throughout the show the audience is following the life of a man, who decided to turn the lives of those around him into a living hell, after losing someone close to him.

The compassion and kindness that he's met with, that's what can make anyone cry.

Tell Me Who I Am

If you don't find fiction to hit close to home, perhaps this documentary will be the one for you. Tell Me Who I Am tells a story of two twin brothers, Alex and Marcus Lewis.

When Alex loses his memory in a motorcycle accident at age 18, his brother has to be the one to help him restore all the childhood memories.

However, Marcus skips one terrifying part of their past, that they will come in terms with only 35 years later.

Dear Zachary

Dear Zachary is a true crime based documentary.

It is one of the movies you better not check anything out about to not spoil the experience, so don't look it up too much and just give it to the story.

Unfortunately, it has been removed from Netflix as of now but we still suggest you watch it on other streaming services that you have available: Kanopy, Prime Video, Paramount Plus, The Roku Channel, SHOWTIME, Vudu or Apple TV, just to name a few.

Move to Heaven

This Korean drama has the perfect combination of sadness, heartfelt and mellow that makes everyone who watches it be full of tears.

Being trauma cleaners, both leads learn and connect with those deceased to rethink their own sentiments toward life, death and family.

My Octopus Teacher

For those who don't really like to think about death and want to focus on the more bright parts of life, this documentary is a gem.

My Octopus Teacher shows a strong bond created over a year between the filmmaker and the wild common octopus he follows around.

This is a beautiful impactful story about humans and nature that will make you cry, but for all the right reasons.
