    The Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH presents the first community screening of this locally produced documentary directed by Michael Venn and produced by Karlina Lyons. 

    Every day in the United States, 144 people die from heroin and other opioid overdoses but, there is hope. Dean, Sandi, and Eric are in long-term recovery and they are part of the solution. That said, Daniel’s video diary serves as the most personal of warnings. 

    The key to fighting this epidemic lies in bringing people together. Only as a community, with a shift in our perception of addicts and addiction, can we begin to tackle this crisis.
