When brokenness is pervasive among those who surround you, the darkness can be overwhelming, sapping any resolve to hope for better. In this sober telling of alcoholism and abuse, the audience will be confronted with this sad reality, but there is hope in the act of love — sacrificial love that can break through the darkness, bringing light and hope. In this faith review by Mark Moss, you can read a survey of the different plot points, followed by some discussion questions for a classroom or small group setting.
