Grace 1 (380x187).jpgOfficial Synopsis: “Gracie (Marks) knows hangovers. She's intimately acquainted with them. But this time, why did she wake up, half-dressed, on a Florida beach, 1100 miles from home? Suspicious and distrustful of everyone, including a café owner (Lawrence) with a troubled history of her own, Gracie prefers the relief of alcohol, which had always worked for her. However, when she's arrested for public drunkenness, Gracie is given a choice: six months in jail or 90 meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous in 90 days, and she has to do it in the small town she's landed in.



Though she's not used to strangers caring about her, perhaps the power of community can help her sidestep the landmines lining her path to sobriety, especially the ones she's laid herself. Rooted in powerful performances by Annika Marks and Sharon Lawrence, Grace. compassionately looks at the disease of addiction through a young woman inching towards redemption.”
