The Ninth Floor

The Ninth Floor

In 2004, an apartment overlooking Manhattan's Fifth Avenue housed some thirty young people living in a vortex of drug addiction and despair. Jessica Dimmock entered this world and explored how these addicts fight to get clean, sink deeper into addiction, go to jail, start families, and overall struggle to survive in their own way.
