Excellent Drama and Learning Experience
12 May 2007 | by jcvideozSee all my reviews

I could have sworn this was released by HBO. This short movie was excellent in teaching kids the effects and consequences of drug use. Not to mention protecting a friend and doing what is in their best interest.

This movie showed me a lot and probably one of the many reasons I never experimented with drugs. I am now a 30 year old mother of 2 and wished this movie was around to show my kids. All of the after school specials portrayed a special message. Why ABC stopped doing it is beyond me. Maybe if they still aired them kids today might grow up differently

I remember as if I saw it yesterday! I still remember Tammy Lauren's character. I would love to won this video if anyone knows where to get it please contact me.
