Eight drug addicts are waiting for their connection in a New York apartment belonging
to Leach. Jim Dunn, a budding filmmaker, has agreed to pay for the fix if the addicts
will allow him to film the connection scene. After the men get their shots, they
talk Dunn into trying heroin in order to understand the subject 'first hand.' He
becomes ill and while sleeping, Leach takes an overdose that puts him into a coma.
Dunn recovers, with the aid of the connection, and writes off the film as a failure.
Gracie knows hangovers. She's intimately acquainted with them. But this one? Why
did she wake up, half-dressed, on a Florida beach, 1100 miles from home? And this
time her father - who also knows about the tragedy of addiction from his struggles
with Gracie's mom - isn't going to clean things up. Suspicious and distrustful of
everyone, including a café owner with a troubled history of her own, Gracie prefers
the relief of alcohol - which had always worked for her. When she's arrested for
public drunkenness and attacking a police officer, Gracie is given a choice: six
months in jail or 90 meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous in 90 days, and she has to
do it in the small town she's landed in. She's not used to strangers caring about
her, but perhaps the power of community can help her sidestep the landmines lining
her path to sobriety - especially the ones she's laid herself. "GRACE." compassionately
looks at the disease of addiction through a young woman inching towards redemption.
