The Decline is a documentary that studies the ever-growing overdose epidemic plaguing Vancouver and many other North American cities. With no clear solutions and increasing overdoses, society is desperate for action. Unfortunately poisoned black market drugs, public stigma and political posturing have created a perfect storm. This film looks to unravel the complex and intersecting problems of mental illness, homelessness, addiction and gentrification by speaking with politicians, front line workers and experts. Will something be done to reverse this trend or is it already too late?
