Broken Lines is a true story of hope, transcendence, and ultimately victory over drug addiction. We are all familiar with tragic stories of those who have succumbed to drug overdose and abuse, but we are not so familiar with those who have survived and triumphed. Broken Lines shares the unique insights of a bright young man who survived a near fatal accident and overcame numerous obstacles including ADHD, impulse control disorder, and chronic anxiety. It is the story of promise and the impossible made possible.
Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Scheer illuminates the many and overlapping issues related to dealing with an addiction and traveling the difficult road to recovery.
