Crystal City follows the harrowing journey of current and former addicts in New York City, all of whom knew Crawford from his recovery process. For both Crawford and Rob Copeland, another recovering meth addict, the film was another step toward redemption.
It happened at a point in my recovery where I had become aware of how important it was to let go of all the shame and fear that had built up in my life, Copeland said. After all, that was the source of my self-medicating.
