All it takes for someone to become dependent on opioids is seven days of use. Legal prescriptions have paved the way for the addiction epidemic plaguing the United States. 7 DAYS is an empathic, delicate look at some of the individuals who have become the face of this national tragedy. Taking a macro perspective on the issue, the film explores how addiction is rarely a choice, but a vicious cycle that preys on the disenfranchised and underserved.
