Life, Loss & Hope in the Opioid Epidemic

In the United States, at least 91 people die every day from an overdose to opioids, including prescription painkillers and heroin. The ripples of these deaths linger in the memories of those who survive, and those who they leave behind. Who We Are takes viewers on an immersive journey into the lives of people left in the wake and provides an intimate and meditative portrait of life, loss, and hope through the families experiencing this U.S. crisis, the opioid epidemic.
