Unstoppable: The Fentanyl Epidemic
2016 • 44 min
Canadians' attention was briefly grabbed by the headline: the story--an abnormally high number of overdose deaths caused by a drug called fentanyl. It merited a few days attention and then was pushed off the media stage by other concerns. What Canadians failed to appreciate was that those few headlines offered a forboding glimpse of what might be one of the most destructive waves of illegal drugs to hit North America since Pablo Escabar flooded the continent with cheap cocaine. Fentanyl is a killer. And fentanyl isnt' just preying on the addict population of this country, its victims are also Canada's unsuspecting middle class. The epidemic is showing no signs of letting up. In fact all signs pont to the death count rising as more and more powerful versions of this drug seep into the country. The result, Canadians have no idea what is "slouching" towards them in the near future. Through the eyes of four characters affected by this drug, Dam Builder productions will take the audience inside this world in a way that will enlighten, outrage and facinate.
