Storyline

In the era of gansta' rap wannabes, 19-year-old Jon's hopes of escaping the suburban ghetto get derailed when his drug-hustling childhood friend is incarcerated. Jon's loyalty challenges his morality as he ascends to benevolent 'kingpin of his neighborhood.' Jon develops a relationship with a beautiful recovering addict, AJ. Everything comes to a halt when Jon suffers a severe accident. Immobilized and separated from his phone, Jon's physical and emotional pain leads him to a new romance, with OxyContin. Unable to track down AJ, Jon falls into the deep hole of addiction. Caught between love and death, Jon tries to save everyone but himself. Written by TS

No Sugar Coating
20 August 2019 | by debijohessSee all my reviews

If you like a dose of realty you will really dig this drug addiction film. It's gets down to the real nitty gritty with a no nonsense storyline and acting that is in your face real. A very real life like portrayal of the slippery slop of drug addiction and the impact on the soul and others around you. There is some real heart and compassion in here as well. Very well executed with complimenting production values make this a real indie winner.
