awesome indie film
12 October 2010 | by lisamrubinSee all my reviews

Intense. Real. Gripping. Relatable. Well written. Visually captivating. This is a wonderful indie flick that pulls you in and really captures the struggles of a family affected by drugs abuse. I found myself relating to its characters and their emotional battles which is always a tell tale sign of an amazing film. This movie definitely pulls on your heartstrings and you come away with the feeling that you've been let in on something very personal and also thinking about how you would feel and act if this story was actually your life. For being an independent movie, the production is really top notch and you can tell the film makers and actors put their heart and soul into bringing the story to life. Kudos and bravo to everyone involved in this movie!!!
