Dying in Vein, the opiate generation

Release Date: 2-3-2016

Synopsis

Dying in Vein is a deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction through a cinéma vérité style that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a couple trying to get clean, and a family grieving the loss of their son. Through these stories, the film explores the contemporary belief of 'living life pain-free', the shame and blame that exists around addiction, co-dependence, and the impact of socioeconomic class on our broken treatment system.
