With a past that includes a father who abandoned her, multiple sexual assaults, and a stepbrother who died from a heroin overdose, Loren, 26, has turned to alcohol to numb her pain. She drinks up to three litres of wine a day and suffers from seizures, black outs, and violent mood swings. A year ago, Loren entered treatment where she met her girlfriend, Christy (35). The two have been joined at the hip -- and bottle -- ever since. Christy is near death, and her body is shutting down after years of alcohol and prescription drug abuse. She is tortured by the thought of leaving her two children without a mother when she dies. Two families who have never met join forces to attempt a high-stakes double intervention in a last ditch effort to save their lives.
