What Is Four Good Days About?
Based on a true story, Molly Wheeler (Mila Kunis) is a heroin addict. She has been for more than a decade. She has lost custody of her children, relapsed 15 times, and has finally decided to try and get clean again.
When she shows up at her mother Deb's (Glenn Close) house, begging for help, their already fragile mother-and-daughter relationship, is put to the test. Again.
But there is a glimmer of hope. A doctor can give her a monthly shot of an opioid antagonist which will make her immune to getting high.
The catch is that Molly must stay clean for four painfully long days to get the treatment. Can she stay clean long enough and will she get her life back? Watch Four Good Days to find out.
