The Man Who Wasn't There

Two young addicts, post-rehab, journey back to a place where the promises of a better life, future success and great distinction were shattered by an uncontrollable decline into devastating drug and alcohol addiction. For these two college students what was meant to be the beginning of the rest of their lives is almost where it came to an end. Now, in recovery and back in school, they find themselves having to survive memories of the humiliating, painful descent into the depths of hell, a mind prone to living in delusion and the incessant, enduring craving for an escape defined by self-destruction and addiction.
