Is there a way for her to release herself from his obsession or has his addiction become hers as well? She must travel a long and painful path of self-reflection in order to finally allow her son to help himself. ANNE JOBES has been raised in an abusive home, and has married a self-absorbed man. In her need to feel some control over her life she has become inter-reliant with every person she meets. When her son becomes addicted to heroin she attempts to recover for him - enabling his addiction, keeping secrets from her family members, and trying to control what is uncontrollable. This is a story of personal triumph and unconditional love. Anyone whose life has been affected by addiction or codependance will easily relate to Annes story and find hope in the freedom of accepting her powerlessness.
