Is it possible to turn your life around in thirty days?
A close look at one man’s search for redemption and understanding, JUNKIE follows Cal, a Somerville heroin addict, as he undergoes thirty days in a state rehabilitation center. Over this brief span of sobriety, Cal confronts not only the choices which brought him to rehab, but also the world that made him who he is. Funny and unapologetic, JUNKIE shows us the path to recovery is not always a clear trail.
