A dissolute drug addict, John Cambioti (Joe Gawalis), clinging to life, reconnects with his torn apart family on the third anniversary of their parents’ death. John’s younger brother Michael and sister Cara welcome him back with open arms and try to help John for the better but his older brother Jimmy knows a dark family secret that tore the family apart and for which John was responsible. With the family’s help, John starts to turn his life around and the reconstruction of an individual and a family begin. But fresh starts aren’t easy to come by as the past has a way of returning when you least expect it. A touching story that truly shows anything can happen Around Every Corner.
