Abstract:

Todd's Story is a moving portrait of a young man whose risk-taking behavior and activities lead to substance abuse and a tragic death in a motorcycle accident at age 21. Told by Todd's mother, it poses some very strong questions to teens about risk-taking behaviors, particularly substance abuse. The tragedy of a life lost so young is made even more painful by the loss of so many possibilities and talents wasted. Young people will be very receptive to its message because it is about a real person with whom they will be able to identify.
