A Powerful and Thoughtful Documentary
8 October 2019 | by zooey-sophiaSee all my reviews

This film carefully and thoughtfully navigates the terrain of crystal meth addiction in the msm community in New York City. Winding around stigma about being gay, drug addiction, and living in NYC, Director Terrence Crawford delivers a powerful message about human finitude, resilience, and possibility.
