Three poignant testimonials from parents and children whose relationships are marked by the parent's or child's addiction. Whether it's alcohol, medication or drugs, a mother neglecting her children or a son lying to his parents, addiction wreaks havoc in a family. How unconditional is love when addiction beckons?

A father watches with fear as his son strikes out on his own. After 2 years of being clean, he is moving to the big city. Will he be able to resist the temptations? A girl talks about how scared she was of her drunken father. Now that he has stopped drinking, he realizes that he will have to earn back the trust of his daughters. After yet another overdose of medication, a son confronts his mother: if she still wants a relationship with her children, it has to stop. Three candid, intimate stories about what years of addiction do to relationships within a family. Trust is broken, wounds are made that are difficult to heal. Love is put to the test when addiction is involved.
