Summary

John Diabo was a cherished member of a tight-knit family in the Mohawk community of Kahnawake, near Montreal, Quebec. Nevertheless, John had been tortured by drug addiction for more than a decade. In 1998, he ended his own life at the age of thirty-one. For John is the intimate story of John's battle with drugs and his eventual suicide. The film, directed by Dale Montour, John's aunt, is also a portrait of his family. Four years after his death, they break their silence. Courageously they share their stories of survival in the aftermath of loss.
