Director’s Statement

I came across a writer who had a short film script that was based on a family friend that overdosed with heroin. Luckily, the family friend survived the overdosed. Hence, I was very overwhelmed with his story and realized present day we still have a drug problem. Not only has the drug problem in America keeps continuing, the amount of people taking drugs have doubled in the last decade or so. My goal is to bring awareness to the drugs problem. And most importantly, we should always cherish our own lives.
