This emotionally-charged, spiritual journey follows the tortuous steps of a teenager struggling to escape a life of misery and degradation. Krystal is a 14-year-old drug addict and runaway who is ordered by the courts to attend an alcohol and drug treatment program. What makes Krystal's story distinctive is that her rehabilitation requires that her parents attend counseling as well. Based on the 12-step AA program, the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC) combines both individual and group therapy sessions. Because Krystal's parents have been involved in the recovery process, AARC believes Krystal and her family have an incredible opportunity to move forward with their lives.
