This is a film about the dangers of some prescription medicines. It's also a film about life, adversity and overcoming obstacles.
It seems an inconceivable possibility to take a prescription medicine as prescribed, and end up losing everything. But that is the reality for thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Perhaps just as shocking is the fact that the dangers are known, but the drugs are still being prescribed to trusting patients. These are called Benzodiazepines, and they are a class of prescription drugs available all over the world.
This film will highlight the extreme and severe effects of these prescriptions; following stories of those experiencing withdrawal first-hand, interviewing specialists to raise awareness of this epidemic being termed 'the next Opioid crisis', and exploring the power of creativity in healing.
