The aim of this film is to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic's devastating effect on America's youth.
We want to break down some of the stereotypes associated with heroin and opioid abuse. To reduce some of the shame surrounding addiction.
We want to encourage viewers to think about the reasons behind this epidemic.
The film demonstrates the intimate relationship that a person in recovery can feel they have to a drug, the loneliness and isolation that addiction is often born out of and in turn creates, and the crippling mental back-and-forth experienced by those in recovery.
We want to encourage the friends and family of anyone suffering from an opioid addiction to talk to their loved one. To understand that addiction is a disease and not moral failing.
We hope that, by showing the pain of addiction in a slightly different light, we can encourage a greater level of empathy towards those suffering because of it.
