STORYLINE


This feature film follows the lives of people in Alberta, Canada, affected by the powerful opioid drug fentanyl. The underlying source of the fentanyl crisis in the country goes back to 2012, when the notorious prescribed painkiller OxyContin was pulled from pharmacy shelves in lieu of a “safer” alternative, OxyNeo. This was the point in time when counterfeit fentanyl disguised as fake OxyContin pills arose, proliferated, and sparked a full-on crisis in the country—with Canada’s west becoming a major epicenter.
