This film reveals the tragic impact of the overuse of prescription painkillers on individuals, families and communities. They are stories that often begin with medical treatment for moderate to severe pain that evolve into drug addiction and death. In addition to the personal stories of those impacted by the opioid crisis, the documentary explores the dramatic increase in the use and acceptance of prescription painkillers and addresses possible solutions to the opioid epidemic, including more non-drug treatment for pain, improved opioid prescribing, and reducing the amount of opioids produced and prescribed in America.

 All events are open to the public and admission is free.  We encourage a small donation to help cover screening rights.
