You'd never know it to look at her, but Annie is dying. Although she looks healthy on the outside, every day she purges through vomiting or laxative abuse. Her compulsion is consuming her. Her fiancee, Kevin, is desperate to end the cycle of self-abuse before it's too late. An INTERVENTION may be their only hope for a normal life together, or any life at all.
And in another compelling case, Amy was always the popular one, a real trendsetter, and she was on track for great things. But her life was derailed by sexual abuse in her teens and ever since she has been bent on self-destruction. Living on the streets with her boyfriend, Amy numbs the pain through drugs and cutting. Can an INTERVENTION reclaim some of Amy's wasted promise?
Bear witness as these Annie and Amy's loved ones offer final chances to reclaim their lives before it's too late.
