Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In a routine drama about teen drug addiction, Antonio Morelli (Ben Gazzara) is a lawyer with good community standing who is overwhelmed when he discovers that his son has a heroin habit. Antonio lets his law practice slide, and he does everything he can to get his son off drugs -- but nothing works. Finally, in desperation he intentionally starts taking heroin himself in a risky effort to show his son what it looks and feels like from the other side of the fence. He can only hope this last-ditch effort achieves what nothing else could up to now.
