Water by the Spoonful
In a far corner of the internet, Odessa leads a chat room for recovering drug addicts. From behind their screens, these individuals forge a bond as strong as blood. Off the computer, however, Odessa's real-life family is falling apart. Elliot has returned from Iraq both physically and emotionally broken. Yaz is unable to reconcile her identity as a North Philly girl from the barrio with her upper-crust, intellectual lifestyle. And the family's matriarch is dying of cancer. Water By the Spoonful is a powerful, compassionate look at the meaning of family.
