To the locals of Johnson City, Tennessee, Dr. John Livingston III is just a normal practicing pain specialist, a son to a well-known defense lawyer, and a husband to a beautiful wife named Hope. John represents the working American family man, but with his bright splendor comes dark secrets. In reality, John isn't just a doctor, he's also one of Johnson City's leading opiate distributors, struggling with financial debt and a tormented past.
Making a deal with the city's largest narcotic drug lord known as the Bear, John finds himself falling prisoner to the pain he devoted a career to cure and finds himself losing the very thing he sought to prolong - life. Unable to fulfill the The Bear's demands, John quickly finds himself in trouble and, unable to escape, suffers from the deepest of wounds.
In a growing world of ruthless opiate addiction, John must find a natural way to heal the tormenting wounds of his past and present before completely losing all of himself in the future. Behind the Pines is a beautiful story of redemption, and, ultimately, the lengths a man will go to escape the pain and find healing in his life.
