Producer Sandra Avila's ("Endgame") next project tackles the opioid epidemic in her upcoming feature film, 19 Daniel Highway. Inspired by Linda Lajterman's book, "Life After You: What Death and Drugs Leave behind" the film follows a family dealing with their son's addiction to heroin. Stars include David Zayas ("Dexter"), Florencia Lozano ("Narcos") and Judy Reyes ("Claws," "Devious Maids").

 

 

"It is a privilege to be part of a project that reflects an ongoing health crisis in our country," says Avila. "Regardless of race, age or socio-economic status, opioid addiction is increasingly impacting thousands of families every year. We hope our story can shed light on this epidemic and remind them that they are not alone."

 

 

George Valencia ("Glow Ropes") will direct from a screenplay co-written by he and Lozano. Avila will produce alongside Brian Long and Charlene Giannetti.

    This story is a heartbreaking one about my dear friend and the tragic loss of her young son.

    This epidemic is a horror and these drugs are the devil.

    I am so ecstatic to see this film come to fruition.

    I hope it will help to heal many. But mostly Linda, Tito and their family. This is for you Danny, God rest your soul.
