Based on true events. On the edges of Las Vegas, 17-year-old Andrew&#39s life is spiraling out of control. Unable to cope with the loss of his father, Andrew&#39s descent into drugs and violence is gaining momentum, and the once promising young man is now headed for self-destruction. Andrew&#39s mother, helpless to control her son and fighting an addiction of her own, refuses to watch idly as her only child destroys himself. As a last resort, she hires a private company to forcibly kidnap and confine him in a locked-down and corrupt psychiatric hospital. As Andrew is subjected to the secret physical and emotional abuses of the program, something inside him is re-awakened. He must somehow get free to save what&#39s left of his life, but to do that, he knows he must first face his own demons head-on.
