From Philadelphia to Malibu, a shocking and intimate look at an addiction epidemic through the eyes of families navigating the troubled rehab industry. From Andy Capper (Swansea Love Story). Features music from Spiritualized, Sian Alice Group & Sean Yeaton of Parquet Courts. Told through the eyes of a mom whose son is struggling with Substance Use Disorder, PEOPLE LIKE YOU is an unblinking, emotional feature documentary on the opioid epidemic told through the eyes of those suffering from substance use disorder, their families and the people trying to help them in the troubled rehab industry. •America’s opioid epidemic is a public health crisis worse than AIDS but with a tiny fraction of the resources to fight it. Every day, 180 people die from drugs, and every 10 seconds somebody is admitted to ER from a drug overdose. It is affecting everybody, from the streets to the suburbs to the mansions of Malibu. This is not just an opioid problem; it is a mental health and addiction epidemic that is increasing year upon year nationally and internationally. •The film is produced by Happy Now Film, the company of award-winning writer and filmmaker Andy Capper (Swansea Love Story, The Choe Show, Lil Bub & Friendz, Reincarnated, Noisey, Vice on HBO).
