Synopsis: A poignant portrait of a young man— Wes Doty— who, like many Americans, has fallen victim to opioid use disorder. This film recounts how the ravages of drug use stole Wes’ life from him and put him on the street with no where else to turn—almost. Through a supportive community, Wes finds a love and a passion that changes the course of his entire life.
