Director's Statement

The yearly death tolls from opioid abuse continue to rise and the narrative surrounding it often focuses on the users, the patients, the addicts. We wanted to tell a story that isn't about judgement nor glamorisation of drugs, but instead about the monotony of day to day painkiller abuse. Levi explores some of the circumstances that lead to the continuing abuse of prescription painkillers and the people who are trapped by it.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Drugs, Addiction, Friendship, Identity, Relationships.
