What would cause a hugely successful criminal defense lawyer to leave his steady stream of clients, comfortable suburban home home and idyllic life with a wife of ten years and three young children -- for a place where he shared a modest apartment with three drug addicts?
His client was doing the unthinkable -- turning the tables on the attorney who had helped him most. South Florida was getting too hot for the lawyer, but that heat had little to do with the outside temperature. John Patrick Contini had to get out of town and he needed a place to hide -- even if that meant feigning an addiction to get admitted into a recovery center in Atlanta.
There, John came face to face with a brand new person, himself. Feeling the Heat takes a probing look into the secret places of one man’s heart -- and exposes our very human desires, belief systems, the lies we tell ourselves, and the truth about being addicted to more,
until we surrender to win.
We can run, but we can’t hide, -- at least not from ourselves
