Water by the Spoonful

Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. Water by the Spoonful, winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize, is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.

CONTENT WARNING: This show contains themes of war, PTSD, child neglect, and drug addiction.
