When a girl with a haunted past is faced with the decision to relapse or continue working on her sobriety, she must decide if she will end up like her father or break the cycle of addiction once and for all. This is the premise of Get Up Eight, a short semi-autobiographical student film written, directed, and produced by Gabrielle Rosson for Bridgewater State University as part of her senior honors thesis project. The objective was to tackle the topic of generational addiction to break stigmas and raise awareness about addiction and recovery. It’s overall message is: Fall down seven times, Get Up Eight. No matter what–just keep going!
