In 1999, after losing his son in a drug-related shooting in New Orleans and lacking answers from police, a small town pharmacist - Dan Schneider - beats the odds when he embarks on a dogged pursuit to find and bring his son's killer to justice. But months later, the ripple effects of his son's addiction and tragic death would find him again when a troubling number of young, seemingly healthy people begin visiting Dan's pharmacy with high dose prescriptions for OxyContin. Sensing a crisis long before the opioid epidemic had gained nationwide attention, Dan stakes a mission: Save the lives of other sons and daughters within his community. Then take the fight to Big Pharma itself.
It's pretty rare to see the story of a person who has actually acted to make a difference and change the world. Dan's story is just that. At times it's easy to dismiss him as a bit of a wacko who's struggling to keep going after a huge loss and gets carried away, but I think that might be because it's hard to imagine caring so deeply about something that you're willing to go to extreme lengths to make it happen. Absolutely heartbreaking, but also incredibly beautiful.
