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."
