Pain Warriors (2020)

Pain Warriors examines with unflinching truth, the alternate side of the Opioid crisis: undertreated pain and the resulting suicides occurring at an alarming rate across North America. This courageous new film shines a light on patients fighting for the right to manage severe pain, including an eleven-year-old boy who has all but given up hope. When opioids and other medications are suddenly withdrawn because of a blanket “one-size-fits-all” legislation, doctors and patients alike are left with nowhere to turn.
