A compassionate and uplifting look at the fight for forgiveness, redemption and what it means to be family.
Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. His mother is in a chat room, talking with recovering addicts who are keeping 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. Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize, Water by the Spoonful is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
