Shot over three years, the film begins at the Maine Correctional Center where Jacinta, 26, and her mother Rosemary, 46, are incarcerated together, both recovering from drug addiction. As a child, Jacinta became entangled in her mother's world of drugs and crime and has followed her in and out of the system since she was a teenager. This time, as Jacinta is released from prison, she hopes to maintain her sobriety and reconnect with her 10-year-old daughter, Caylynn, who lives with her paternal grandparents. Despite her desire to rebuild her life for her daughter, Jacinta continually struggles against the forces that first led to her addiction.

Established in 2018, Points North Institute's Recovery in Maine program is a statewide series of documentary film screenings intended to stimulate public discussions around substance use disorder, the recovery process, and our collective response to the opioid epidemic. This program highlights recovery work being done around the state, provides a forum for community networking, inspires people to become involved, and works to humanize and de-stigmatize substance use disorder in general. Over the past four years, the program has produced over three dozen screenings in communities across Maine, reaching thousands of people. All screenings are free and open to the public, and most are followed by a panel with a diverse set of individuals involved in the recovery community.
