Summary, etc.:
Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for fifteen years, they have a wonderful daughter, successful careers, and a beautiful house. They also have a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. Denise and Derrek attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings. But with Denise's job becoming more stressful, it is the drugs that allow her to get through her long days. Then Derrek, who has been clean for weeks, relapses when there is a family tragedy. Once soul mates, this husband and wife are quickly losing the immense love they once felt for each other. With her parents spiraling out of control, their daughter, Mackenzie, makes an unexpected move to take matters into her own hands. But while one of them does enter rehab, the other is unable to end the addiction. Is this that person's ultimate fate, or is there still hope and a final chance to save the Shaw family?
