Molly (Mila Kunis), a 31-year-old drug addict who has been using heroin, methadone, crack, and Adderall for 10 years, showing no signs of recovery. Having been in and out of detox 14 times already, things start to look bleak for Molly, as she is even at risk of losing custody of her children because of her addiction.
With the help of her mother Deb (Glenn Close), who continues to do anything to help her daughter, Molly looks to overcome her addiction by getting monthly injections of opioid antagonists, essentially making her immune to getting high. But in order to start treatment, Molly must remain sober for at least four more days. The next few days are incredibly difficult for the two of them, as not only is Molly's willpower tested, but also her relationship with Deb. What follows is an emotional journey of the realities of addiction, and how it affects Molly's life and relationships.
