Synopsis

A remake of the groundbreaking educational 1998 film "Heroin Kills," this updated version follows a young ballerina named Heather in Carroll County, Maryland. A teenage girl with a promising future faces an injury, which quickly spirals into a pill addiction. The pseudo-documentary dives deep into the impact addiction has on friends, family, significant others, and the addict themselves, while honoring real-life loved ones that have been lost during our society's battle with the opioid epidemic.
