    Bridget Smith | Sno Babies Director a film about youth Heroin addiction and spreading hope in recovery

    Bridget Smith is the director of the gripping and emotive tale, SNO BABIES. She speaks on how making the film changed her perception of addiction and the hope behind the recovery process. The film depicts the grim realities of addiction and its effects on a middle-class suburban town. Kristen and Hannah are best friends–smart, likable, and college-bound– and also addicted to heroin. The pair of seemingly unlikely addicts spiral down a path of destruction, hiding their secret from well-meaning but busy parents behind pink bedrooms and school uniforms SNO BABIES shows how easy it can be to both miss and hide the signs of addiction behind the façade of “good” neighborhoods and pleasantly busy communities. The film sheds light as well as hope in recovery.  Bridget also discusses the official SNO BABIES soundtrack features some of the biggest names in rock music today.  The soundtrack will include two tracks from SIXX: A.M. and will include the Top 10 hits from Country/Rock star Cory Marks (“Outlaws & Outsiders”) and from chart-toppers Bad Wolves (“Sober” – the #1 hit) as well as new music from Eva Under Fire, From Ashes to New and Escape The Fate.  The artist royalties of the soundtrack benefit the Global Recovery Initiatives. For more on Sno Babies and the Global Recovery Initiatives https://snobabiesmovie.com/  https://globalrecoveryinitiatives.org/  https://www.instagram.com/phillybornproductions/  https://www.facebook.com/SnoBabiesMovie/  For Carlos Vieira's autobiography Knockin' Doorz Down   https://www.kddmediacompany.com/   For more on the Knockin' Doorz Down podcast and to follow us on social media  https://www.kddmediacompany.com/podcasthttps://www.instagram.com/knockindoorzdown/https://www.facebook.com/knockingdoorsdown/For more information on the Carlos Vieira Foundation and the Race 2B Drug-Free, Race to End the Stigma, and Race For Autism programs, visit:https://www.carlosvieirafoundation.org/https://www.facebook.com/CVFoundation/https://www.instagram.com/carlosvieirafoundation/For more information on the 51FIFTY LTM lifestyle brand https://51fiftyltm.com/https://www.facebook.com/51FIFTYLTMhttps://www.instagram.com/51fiftyltm/
