The capule is pried open in this untold look on how a network of pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, and retailers worked together to orchestrate and perpetuate the opioid crisis that has killed over half a million people in America. This story is about more than just the opioid crisis. It is a film that captures the corruption in business and the lengths that corporations are willing to go for their bottom line. A critique on late-stage capitalism and a cautionary tale of unfettered greed.
