Eighteen-year-old Eva Yin is admitted into an ER in the San Francisco Bay Area for a serious blood infection—the souvenir of a missed shot of heroin. Barely recovered and against medical advice, she leaves the hospital for New York City only to end up homeless and face prostitution and violence.
Being a heroin addict is like running in circles. You run and you run and you end up exactly where you started. In the end, Eva finally stops running but only after crossing the span of an entire continent and coming back to the shores of California—she is back to where she started but she isn't the same.
Running in Circles is the unflinching true story of one woman's struggle and recovery from heroin addiction.
Contains mature themes.
