Told with heart-wrenching detail by a family stricken by loss, Written Off offers the chance to recontextualize an epidemic viewed largely through numbers and reports. Through interviews and archival material, including personal journals, the film shares how a small town boy with everything going for him became an addict and eventually another statistic. As the US government has declared opioid use a national emergency, be sure to get the story straight from those affected most.
