Description: 

Will Gates died from a heroin overdose in 2009. His father Skip began a journey to try and educate as many people as possible of the harm in not only the drug, but how we are dealing with the problem. Through the voices of Skip, his son Sam, former opiate abusers, The HowardCenter, Senator Leahy, Tristram Coffin, Attorney General Holder and more; we find ourselves amid reality.
