Description: Living in a small town and amongst a house full of crystal meth abusers, seventeen year-old Abe wrestles to beat an addiction to meth and struggles to protect himself and his young niece from an abusive Uncle Bump. When Sonny returns home from prison seeking redemption from his son, Abe, the two must navigate the treacherous waters created by Bump, who will do almost anything to maintain a dangerous lifestyle fueled by crystal meth. The tension and suspense build up to an electrifying ending where harrowing choices are made by all three men leading each of them to a different fate. Unlike any other movie, "Cook County" unflinchingly tells a raw and real story of rural life where crystal meth dictates the family dynamic.
