What if a special kind of heroin granted you telekinetic abilities and a super intoxicating high?

In the winter of Philadelphia's Badlands, a heroin abused area, the doctor gives Titan 24 hours to make a decision: overcome his history of addiction and live or shoot up and save Philadelphia. After meeting with his estranged and widowed mother, Titan begs her to check him into a rehab facility.

However, a villain soon rises to power with the same telekinetic abilities. Titan must decide to either inject a fatal dose of the drug or walk away from it all.

Drew Phillips | Director, Writer

This project hits close to home for me. I witnessed the horrors of addiction firsthand; I believe everyone has something they can let go of in order to make a positive change in their life.
