A story about Functional people, doing Dysfunctional things.
~ A film by David Molino
Drugs, Booze & Woes
We started this film project with the intent of raising awareness about the growing trends of
drugs and alcohol addiction, the rise in untreated mental illness, and the lack of a proper
psychological prognosis (the likely course of a disease or ailment) and treatment.
I'm sure that we all have a moment that distorted our own clarity or lack thereof, when dealing
with dysfunctional behavior. No matter how you take on this subject, people are turned off,
because it is a reminder of something that we all don't want to admit or see.
A bad drunk is a game changer, but rarely does it change the game, until they kill someone.
Abuse and addiction it is the aftermath of something traumatic that spiraled downward until
finally reaching rock bottom.
It starts out one way and ends another. Personally, I lost four friends to suicide and addiction.
It could have been avoided, I say over and over again, it could have been prevented,
and it could have ended differently.
I took the blame for not answering the phone that one, or two, or three times.
Tired of dealing with their issues, until life ended abruptly and I played the I'm sorry card.
My predictions knew exactly how it was going to end, and it did. In each of my characters in the
film you find a similarity to someone you may know or knew, and you understand the
disconnection one takes as a last resort to disengage.
So easily are we able to judge and find offensive their language or actions in this film and take
it personal, but the real world mirrors the reality that life is cruel, you find that your blood is
worth more than tears.
We choose to not listen, to look the other way, to filter and live in denial, and imagine that the
sun is always shining until you step into a pile of dog poop.
Drugs, Booze & Woes is reminder that Sodom and Gomorrah does exist, and hell is a
playground full of fools, who were just like us. It would be nice to open dialog and address
this social issue from a new perspective. What are your thoughts?

A malignant narcissists
Narcissists, sociopath and otherwise toxic person who will continually test your boundaries.
Davey. Belittling and degrading a person is a toxic person’s forte and their tone of voice is only one tool in their toolbox.
Caught between what’s right and what’s wrong, the decision made was one of indulgence, that leads to a crossroad between Heaven and Hell. A road you can no longer see, but blindly explore.
The whole truth about Sean is all over her face, but she is too fucked up to take notice.
When toxic types can’t control the way you see yourself, they start to control how others see you; they play the martyr while you’re labeled the toxic one.
It is going to get real nasty, somebody is going to feel the heat…
Sharon is unhappy and depressed, and likely to commit suicide over a woman who will never love her, and who could care less if she lives or dies…
Amy’s husband Peter is an abusive alcoholic who is afflicted with anger and is in denial of his sexuality… He is an angry self centered abusive asshole whose time will come to a tragic ending.
So many failed attempts, the odds will eventually not be in her favor… No one gives a shit either!
He is known to be one toxic bad ass mother fucker.
Eliza is one pas·sive-ag·gres·sive Bitch, her day will eventually come with a vengeance.
Eliza is an unstoppable force who will personally drag you into hell. Judge & Jury!
Looking through the fog, what you see, may not be what it appears to be.
Another man’s wife can be hazardous to your health…
A Delusional sociopath, codependent, obsessed and controlling. His dominion over Sean is measured by the size of his purse.
Sean holds the key and is reaping the financial benefits. However, he cherishes the finer things in life like silk, chiffon and lace…
Joshua is a wife beat·er borderline pedophile who spent most of his life alone seeking redemption for his actions. Faithful to a woman who is fueled by hate and resentment. He is a lost cause waiting to die, or for Eliza to kill him.
This is a emotional roller coaster ride taking you into the minds of those afflicted with the disease.
