A feature documentary film that focuses on the more than 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drugs. This moving story is told through the faces and voices of the leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting recovery solutions.
