What is Four Good Days About?
When Molly suddenly turns up at her mother Deb’s door one day, Deb refuses to let her in at first. This is because Molly has been a drug addict for the last decade and has repeatedly lied to, stolen from, and greatly hurt her mother, to the point that Deb even wonders if there’s anything left to do to save Molly. Ultimately, Deb decides to give Molly one more chance because she feels this time, Molly is more determined to kick her addiction to the curb.
A doctor at a detox clinic tells them that Molly needs to stay clean for four more days so that she can be injected with a substance that neutralizes the cravings and effects of opioids for a month, thus helping in recovery. And so begins Molly fight to turn her life around.

Needless to say, the journey is not an easy one for either character.
