Self Medicating Spirals Into Addiction.

A man finds himself falling into addiction after the death of his only child. His wife, family and work are all demanding and under all his pressures, he must learn to swim or risk drowning.

I thought this was a good representation of a functioning addict's life. I think it is only fair to say that people never start taking meds or using drugs because they wanted to become addicts. Life his hard. Demands are many. Tragedy can come unannounced and both mental and emotional health are looked down on. The cost of treatment is unattainable for many, leaving them to their own devices when trying to cope. It's sad. We need to start teaching the importance of mental, emotion and physical health as well as coping skills. At least that could be a key starting point for future generations. The teachings in home life are not always adequate and we owe our children the hope of a better future. They need these tools.

The film is a slow burner but it manages to pull the viewer into it. While I don't recall ever hearing why the daughter passed away, I realize that the film wasn't so much about her death. It is more about coping. The somber feel for the atmosphere was spot on. It wasn't over done. Some of the nature scenes were videoed beautifully. (I personally loved all the stream/creek scenes.)

This isn't a bad watch. Glad I came across it.

A must watch

I recommend this movie 100%. The story line is one that many people can relate to and it could help those who are struggling with addiction or know someone who is. It will have you feeling every type of emotion from the very beginning. The acting plays a big part in that also, every single one of the cast did an amazing job.

Not one false note

I love Josh Stewart as an actor, , so I expected to like this, and ended up being completely impressed by this film which he stars in, wrote and directed. A film about the opioid epidemic and it's effects on a West Virginia family , this movie is perfectly cast, with amazing performances from every one, gritty, realistic, and yet also understated. The Cinematography is outstanding. There is nothing phony and Hollywood about this, it draws you in and you come to care about the characters who are so much more then their drug addictions. Since in real life I also live in the south and know these people, I can say this movie is 100% real life. Josh has done an amazing job with both directing and writing this and even more impressive, where other actors turned director could have made this all about themselves, he allows the other actors to shine too, especially A.J. Cook as his wife, Agnes Bruckner as his sister, David Selby as his father and an outstanding sleazy performance by Wade Williams as a dealer. A small movie with a big impact, great cinema !
