Storyline

Texan small town high school buddies Chris, Owen Turner and Samantha 'Sam' Campbell were inconspicuous, bored and feeling blasé about anti-drug campaigns, so they 'experiment'. After OD'ed Sam's dad gets her to detox, she grows closer to gentle Chris, who follows suit, and the pair takes distances from her cocky ex Owen, who gets drawn into the drug scene. Even their friend Brad's OD-death can't get Owen back on track. A knee-injury as track athlete tempts Chris to try Owen's heroin, and fatally switch sides, stupidly followed by Sam. And dealer Kurt's gang shows penniless 'client' kids no mercy. Written by KGF Vissers

being a high school student,i have to take a health class. this year, the topic is drugs. we learn about the harm they can cause a person. from what we talk about, i still believe and know that drugs can really mess a person up. anyway, my teacher wanted us to watch this. naturally, we groan and start to sleep, but like the rest of my class, i actually did enjoy this movie. it was totally real, and not sugar coated at all. the characters were amazing and believable. even the plot was outstandingly realistic and believable. what i liked about this movie mainly was how it got the point of the effect's drugs can take on an abuser, and the consequences the person has to deal with. everyone reassures themselves that nothing bad will happen to them. well lets get serious. anything can happen in a small town, even to your best friend, like Sam and Chris. this movie shows it. a person can really learn a lot from watching this. it was pretty effective.
