    • Synopsis
    • TAGLINE: One girl. Too many ideas. A lot of therapy. Invest your time wisely - a little idea can be a dangerous thing.

      PLOT OUTLINE:
      MOLLY is addicted to ideas. Finally ready to face her addiction, 'ADDICT' documents MOLLY’S journey through group therapy and counselling sessions as she battles to conquer her demons and live a fulfilled life.

      The script is written in a 'fly-on-the-wall' documentary style allowing the viewer uninhibited access as MOLLY meets monthly with her psychologist (unseen and silent). We also accompany MOLLY to her first group therapy session. She settles uncomfortably into a mix of substance abusers, gambling addicts and alcoholics.
