Jessica Dimmock in his first monograph documents the life of a group of addicts who live into an apartment of a former millionaire in a wealthy neighborhood in downtown Manhattan. This project documents  the terrible consequences of heroin abuse though the images of the residents of this flat leading up to their eviction and follows many of them after as they face jail and sickness, fight and love, attempt to get clean, sink deeper into addiction, go to prison, start families and struggle to survive in a chaotic atmosphere.
