"The film is very powerful. It really shows how precious life is, and raises awareness for college students to be more careful when partying. A lot of people tend to hear stories like this after it's too late. Showing this film can influence teens to change their habits."

“My biggest take away from this is the fact that such a "minor" thing that I see every weekend can actually kill someone and flip their loved ones world upside down. Awareness is needed.”

“ ...this film changed lives on our campus. Through multiple showings in various venues, students across campus learned about the hazards of mixing prescription pills with alcohol in a non-judgmental way.

“This film was very eye-opening. I have never really considered the reality of this lethal mix. It not only shows the dangers of prescription drugs mixed with alcohol, but also the effect it has on friends and family. To see how crushed Clay’s friends and family were after the accident should move everyone to consider the real danger in this mix.”

and other emotional illnesses...what do we do to warn them about the danger of playing with pills and alcohol?

“The feedback has been tremendous. Each and every person that has watched the film has been touched by the Soper family's story.

“There wasn't a single person in the room who didn't walk away having learned something. Every
kid in the country should see this ... This was way more powerful than just don't do drugs - this my kids will remember."
