"32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide"


This documentary, "32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide" is airing on HBO in December and available for viewing on-demand.
I found it to be pretty powerful.

Hope Litoff struggles to understand why her sister Ruth took her life and filmed the process of going through her sister's belongings, searching for answers in her journals, artworks, computer files, notes she left behind, discarded pill bottles.... And it is revealed that Hope is also struggling with alcoholism.

Hope filmed a very personal pivotal moment while dealing with the pain. At 16 years of sobriety, she decides to order and drinks a double vodka with two olives.

It's an amazing documentary.

I just watched this. A very sad and moving documentary. The part where she breaks 17 years of sobriety and orders a double vodka, oh my. I could hardly watch. She sits with it a while and then then the insanity takes over and she drinks it.! I am glad she found her way back to sobriety and peace as well over her sisters suicide.
