As opioids sweep the world, filmmakers and citizens alike struggle to understand the seduction and consequences of newly drugged lives. Icelandic director Baldvin Z transforms the female coming-of-age narrative into a world where love and life are tasted and lost in the intersection of the initially naïve Magnea and the sultry Stella who introduces her to the world of drugs, only to escape herself. Image, music, and stellar acting make this a compelling and transporting story.
