To examine what peers and educators can do to reach out to a teen they feel may be privately struggling with a compromised support system (due to troubled/addicted parents).
Ann is forced to face the grim reality that her parents' addictions of alcoholism and problem gambling are slowly destroying her family. While her older brother Mike's quiet stoicism is sorely tested by their alcoholic mother's denial of reality, Ann's own initial reluctance is also an issue. However, after Ann's father gambles away her college fund, she can no longer avoid the truth - and soon grows deeply depressed. Though her brother and best friend, Tami sense something's wrong, will they be in time to avert a potential tragedy?
