WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: This film contains graphic images. Viewer discretion is advised.

In a snowstorm in Rutland, Vermont, a young dad is torn between his kids and his struggle to score smack. He’s just one addict in an idyllic town in the foothills of the Green Mountains that has been transformed by heroin — the drug behind America's latest, most urgent epidemic. Spurred in part by prescription-drug addicts looking for a cheaper high, the classic narcotic is making a comeback: Authorities say heroin seizures in the U.S. have nearly doubled in the past five years. But most of the drugs are never intercepted. Follow Justin Bemis's harrowing story, over two years, from addiction to recovery. Along the way we trace American heroin from users in suburbia to the guerilla controlled mountains of Colombia, meet the poppy farmers and professional "cooks" who feed domestic appetites, as well as the anti drug cops trying to catch them.
