An in-depth look inside a moving case study, this program illustrates a mother’s final attempt to rescue her daughter from heroin—by having a warrant issued for her arrest. After five weeks on the run, Aubrey gives up and goes to the police, enters court-mandated treatment, and moves back in with her mother. They take turns speaking to the camera about their experiences, their relationship, and how they view the future. The film also depicts a support group in which several mothers of addicts share their concerns, fears, and hopes for their children—as well as the toll addiction has taken on their own spirits.
