In this Ad Council/Truth Initiative PSA, director Malik Sayeed of production house Little Minx tells us Amy’s story for ad agency Haymaker.

Amy shares with us her tale of opioid addiction, which began when she had knee surgery. Doctors kept giving her Vicodin and she was hooked as we learn that opioid dependence can happen just after days.

We then see how far Amy will go to get a prescription as she unclicks her seat belt and delibertely crashes her car.
