About the Film
A work in progress, sneak peek screening.
Dying in Vein is an intimate and deeply personal exploration of heroin addiction in three young adults who as young children seem to “have it all.” Ten years later, one is living in sobriety, one has accidentally overdosed, and one is still using. It is a story about the heartache of growing up and the helplessness that families feel when addiction takes hold of a family member. It is raw and real and hopes to move beyond the shame and blame of addiction to the compassion that families need to heal and grow.
