What would cause a highly successful criminal defense lawyer to leave his steady stream of clients, his comfortable suburban home and his idyllic life with a wife of 11 years and three children... for a place
where he shared a modest apartment with 3 drug addicts? South Florida was getting too hot for the lawyer but that heat had little to do with the outside temperature. John Patrick Contini had to get out of town and he found the
perfect hiding place to cool off; Talbott Recovery Center in Atlanta, Georgia where he feigned an addiction so that he could fit in. A client of John's was doing the unthinkable... turning the tables on the man who had helped him
the most. Suddenly John comes face to face with a brand new person. Himself. Feeling the heat is a probing look into all of our addictions, belief systems and surprises we learn about ourselves.
