Doug is a high school teen who has everything: Loving parents and younger brother, terrific girlfriend, and a rock band he plays in after school. Doug also has a drug habit, and all those good things begin to fall by the wayside as his drug dependency and erratic behavior worsen and alienation sets in. Doug wanders into an anti-drug lecture by David Toma (who plays himself in a sequence so powerful it nearly splits the film in half), but Doug is eventually ejected for disruptive behavior. Doug just doesn't get the message - until, inevitably, a terrible tragedy occurs. A surprising subject to be tackled by the Disney studio, this is still an effective and powerful anti-drug film that tells it like it is and doesn't chicken out and weaken its message with a soft ending.- Written by Peter W.
