A woman who appears to have everything going for has to make a decision between her happy life with husband/family and her darker impulse and obsessive love for an inappropriate man which threatens to destroy her ''picture perfect "life
"Addiction: This is not a love story" is a dark but strong short that deals with a woman's life thrown into indecisive Heaven/Hell as she struggles to maintain a perfect normal and safe life (with a husband and child) and a more secretive, dangerous life with an abusive boyfriend on the side.
It shows a very accurate, chaotic mind set/point of view of someone who has/is going through an abusive relationship. The phone calls and constant flip flopping, confusion feels natural and believable, as does the danger and intensity of the consequences of sleeping with such a volatile person. The acting is good, the emotions are strong and I admire the ending's authenticity. Some of the acting for the male roles could have been better but overall, this an intense experience that really hits home and hits it hard in a very impacting way.
