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

A gritty well-crafted movie
16 August 2019 | by metroranSee all my reviews

Ted Carney does a terrific job keeping the tension, the love story and the personal story all going at once. Stellar performances from all the cast. Painful and hopeful, this indie film is well worth the time spent. Watch it.
