Dying in Vein is deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction through a cinéma vérité style that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a lesbian couple trying to get clean, a family grieving the loss of their son, and an Emergency Room Physician trying to save one patient at time. Through these stories, the film explores the contemporary belief of ‘living life pain free’, the shame and blame that exists around addiction, the impact of socioeconomic class on our broken treatment system, and how a group of emergency care physicians are working to save their patients from the opiate crisis.
