Uncomfortable and heart sinking documentary
13 February 2016 | by joebloggscitySee all my reviews

Many of us have been touched by the damage that Class A drugs can do, and for those affected close to home, this is a difficult watch.

We have here an unflinching documentary which is no holds barred as the interviewees are the talking heads explaining their exasperations, failures and hopes to kick the heroin addiction. Giving free reign to the interviewees is quite a brave move, but it works and you feel that you are learning something. It's good to see it let them paint themselves and not resort to filming tactics to try to humiliate them.

One of the most difficult parts is watching the help group for the parents of the addicts. They are honest and straight, and it can be quite heart sinking to see this.

There is not necessarily anything ground breaking here, it's a window into a world where those there are in a downward spiral. It's difficult viewing but still interesting.

Give it a viewing. A good job done by the documentary makers and hope others follow their example in how to tackle such a subject.
