ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Through the stories of families that have lost loved ones to fentanyl and law enforcement officers trying to respond to the crisis, the documentary “Fentanyl Unlimited” aims to give a vulnerable but unflinching look at the current epidemic and the work still needed to stop it.
Director Charlie Minn said his interest in this subject was piqued by the sheer volume of deaths caused by the drug.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the drug is believed to have been linked to more than 70,000 overdose deaths in 2021.
“It’s only getting worse. Fentanyl is getting worse. And quite frankly, nothing’s being done about it,” Minn said.
