Corinne is a pretty, blonde and 18. She was an honor roll student, star athlete and played the clarinet and saxophone who started using drugs at 14 after being sexually abused. Still striving to move forward while battling addiction, she completed her GED and began college, but dropped out. Now, Corinne has become addicted to a deadly combination of heroin and crystal meth, and she is neglecting the insulin required to manage her diabetes. After repeated trips to the emergency room, her family is expecting, any minute, to hear that they've lost her for good.
