Project Description: Chris Dove is a female fire captain in an Alabama town at war with opioids, and she’s facing it head-on, heart-out and under scrutiny. Meanwhile, her arthritic spitfire-of-a-mother, Xenia, now living with Chris after a bad fall, tries to conjure stability with a bundt cake and a Bible verse. When Val, a recovering addict and Chris's childhood friend, crashes into their lives, they find themselves at a tipping point between what’s safe and what saves.
