Overview

The beautiful Hawaiian islands are the backdrop for this compelling true life story of a man trapped between the law and a life of drugs, crime and murder. The once hopeful heir to a family tradition of "To Serve and Protect" and how he spirals out of control. His parents' unconditional love, used as a means to an end, as they witness a son's gradual decline into the depths of hell.

This is an unflinching look at how an addict uses and abuses those around him, ultimately destroying everything. Staunton is a natural story teller and his authentic voice makes this dark tale bearable. There is much to condemn here, much to learn; there is also redemption. A brave look at the dark side, the one we seldom let others see, the one we can't bear to bring into the light of day.
