Over the GW

Tony (George Gallagher) and Sofia (Kether Donohue) are two troubled teenage siblings from the Bronx. Out of options, their mother brings them over the GW Bridge to a rehab clinic in New Jersey. What is meant to be a 30 day stay turns into a traumatic 2 years in which Tony and Sofia experience abuse, brainwashing and false imprisonment. The director of the program, Dr. Hiller (Albert Insinnia), leads Tony and Sofia to believe that the clinic is their only hope to stay sober and stay alive. The siblings enter into a psychological and physical struggle to survive the program and get back to the real world.

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.
