The Journey back - A Movie Length Film Script
The screenplay draws upon the experiences of a hardcore drug addict and alcoholic, the painful events leading up to his "bottom." Ultimately, the protagonist (Dave), was able to face the demons from a tumultuous, abusive childhood that continued to plague him as an adult. For Dave, the only escape from his past was via the bottle and any other mind altering substance he can acquire. His behavior is such that it puts him in danger and causes his life to spiral out of control. Following a violent episode, a woman he cares for deeply has given him an ultimatum to seek help or she’s gone. The film conveys the progression of the protagonist’s internal pain, addiction, and finally, the painful breaking down of the walls that have held him in bondage his entire life. This is a story of pain, hope, and healing that will inspire those who view it, and inform others about the deep hurt and isolation associated with the life of an addict and adult child of an alcoholic.
