The film chronicles the life of Matthew Edwards, whose addiction to opioids began at age 15, after being prescribed pain medicine for a minor surgery. His grippingly honest journals reveal the secrets he tried so hard to conceal throughout a decade long struggle to escape addiction and the stigma that surrounds it.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion that will provide people with take-away resources, local treatment information, and address the destructive stigma of addiction in our local communities.
