Dwayne Higgins lived a glamorous life most people could only dream about. He grew up in Europe and vacationed in South America, the South Pacific, and Russia.
Living and working in Los Angeles, he partied with the top celebrities and directors in Hollywood. He has lived on five continents and worked in Indonesia, Africa, and Mexico.
Dwayne had everything anyone could want until he lost it all to a hellish life of bondage; addicted to drugs and alcohol. He went from living the alluring American dream with a wife and daughter to the pits of hell, with three suicide attempts and an overdose that nearly ended it all.
The grief, agony and irreparable damage that he caused would break him. His heart and soul would be tossed around like a wave in the ocean. Everything he loved, everything he cared about, absolutely everything in his life would be gone because of his addiction.
From Reel to Real is a deeply personal true life account of a man who climbed the highest mountain peaks and experienced the shadows and depths of despair in the tragic deaths of two people he dearly loved. He surrounded himself with luxury, scored drugs in Singapore, and rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous. He would eventually end up jailed and deported from the United States. When he arrived back in Canada, he had developed a heroin addiction and lived in the drug infested downtown Eastside of Vancouver.
