Inspired by true events, “Being Here” follows the life of Charlie, a young woman in her late 20s, as her three months in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility are coming to a close. In fear of leaving her newfound safety bubble, Charlie resists moving on from rehab – defaulting to all of her unhealthy coping mechanisms that brought here there in the first place. Eventually, she is propelled to leave when her best friend, Joy (mid-50s), experiences a personal tragedy, which causes Charlie to clearly see her own life in someone else’s for the first time.
