The director of the program, Dr. Hiller (Albert Insinnia), leads Tony and Sofia to believe this is the only institution that will keep them sober and if they leave they will die. Instead, the siblings enter into a psychological and physical struggle for their lives!OVER THE GW is a poignant story based on writer/director Nick Gaglia's experience in a cult-like rehab. The film exposes the ongoing threat of corrupt rehabilitation centers that prey upon vulnerable teens and their parents.
