The absurd lengths people go to in pursuit of their addictions before they finally seek help are well known in recovery circles. Now, one such story is the subject of a short film in post-production in Los Angeles.
Based on a true story, Bed Ridden chronicles the last score of a young addict and alcoholic named "Jay," who decides he can still navigate the streets of Los Angeles despite the fact a loved one has handcuffed him to his bed to stop him from using drugs. The film stars Joel David Moore and a cast of accomplished comedic players who include Jessica Cauffiel, Alan Tudyk, Skyler Stone and Garrett Morris.
Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jonathan Heap and written by New York Times best-selling author and screenwriter Lowell Cauffiel, Bed Ridden probes both the comedic and poignant sides of an addict’s obsession and its impact on the people he knows and loves. Ultimately, Bed Ridden points to the path of recovery from a disease that affects four in ten American families, according to the National Institutes of Health.
