Overview

Heroin(e) is a gruesomely candid exploration of heroin addiction in the city of Huntington, Western Virginia, and the work of three heroines who worked hard to fight it. The Oscar-nominated documentary follows fire chief Jan Rader, judge Patricia Keller, and street missionary Necia Freeman, as they each tackle the crisis on a day-to-day basis.

The documentary is a memorable call to action, reminding us that neglecting this crisis will likely lead to devastating consequences. Director Elaine McMillion Sheldon focuses on the once lively town of Huntington, highlighting how the challenge is evidently growing across the U.S. By celebrating the work of these women, we can see that it's possible to address challenges head on if we commit to fighting it by addressing them in our own areas of influence.
