Tiburon Film Society Presents: Dying in Vein, the Opiate Generation
Dying in Vein is an intimate and deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction.

The film follows two young women trying to get clean, a 22-year-old in recovery, a family grieving the loss of their son, and a team of ER doctors trying to save their patients. Through these four stories, the film explores the pill to heroin pipeline and the shame and blame that surrounds the disease of addiction. The film looks at the aftermath of death on loved ones, the daily commitment of sobriety, the reality of considering treatment after multiple relapses, and the culpability of our medical communities in the opiate crisis.

Dying in Vein is a film about ALL of our children and the future of the next generation. Because the film is told from the POV of our characters who are living it, it will give high school and university students an opportunity to learn the reality of opiate and heroin abuse. Dramatic, honest and real verite footage brings this story of addiction, loss, and recovery to the screen in an intimate and honest way.
