Portland filmmaker Brian Lindstrom's (FROM THE GROUND UP, KICKING, HEART OF HARLEM) work reflects an ongoing concern for social issues and people who engage the challenges. His new film takes an unflinching look at the daunting difficulties in overcoming addictions and the dynamic within Portland's Central City Concern's recovery mentor program. With a 70% success rate, the program's strength lies in its ability to promote a strong sense of community and connectedness with peers and mentors, all former addicts committed to helping others as they help themselves. "The film is raw and real, filled with undeniable moments of pain and elation and human personality. It's impossible to imagine a more honest look at this all-too-common world." -Shawn Levy, THE OREGONIAN. (77 min)
