|Summary||Irene (Vera Farmiga) is a working class mother living in upstate New York. She struggles to keep her marriage together and raise two sons while keeping her cocaine addiction a secret. She knows kicking the habit will be tough, but she checks herself into a rehab center. There she meets and falls in love with a fellow reformed addict (Hugh Dillon). When one of them falls into a relapse with the addiction, their commitment to staying clean and to each other shatters. This beautifully wrought film accurately and authentically explores the wrenching road to recovery.|
