Eva Holland, 26 and from Cincinnati, met the love of her life when she was 15. But what happens after her husband takes a single pill, is unbelievable.

When they finally are old enough, they decide to marry. To make their lives perfect, the two become parents: they have a sweet son Lucas and an even sweeter daughter, Ava. Mike worships his 2 children and loves his wife more than anything.
But Mike has a dark secret. It all starts out harmlessly. The loving father wakes up one day with a terrible toothache. After dealing with the pain for a few days, he starts to take painkillers. And this turns into a habit: he begins to take one pill after the other for even the smallest of aches. He is quickly addicted. But, it gets even worse: his life takes an unfortunate turn and he is unable to live without pills, switching to heroin.

He reassures his wife that he has everything under control, but the relapse happens immediately. And this time it costs Mike more than his health. His wife Eva finds him dead.
