When it comes to understanding America’s opioid epidemic, overdose numbers don’t tell the full story.
Filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon’s short documentary Heroin(e) follows 3 women in the thick of the crisis in Huntington, West Virginia: fire chief Jan Rader, who works to get Naloxone into the hands of first responders; family court judge Patricia Keller, known for her tough love approach; and Necia Freeman of Brown Bag Ministries who connects with addicts living on the streets.
“I just hope this story helps people grasp onto the daily grind and impact that this crisis is having on the individual level,” Sheldon says. Watch the trailer here.
