About the Film

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.
