The Fifth Estate Dark Crystal

The Fifth Estate Dark Crystal

Exploring the dark experiences of methamphetamine addicts, journalist Gillian Findlay digs into the scarred lives of three young people — a reformed addict with a bright future, a 16-year-old girl struggling in rehab, and a man who cannot let go of the drug. Findlay takes the viewer on a voyage into the shady corners of a small town wracked by crystal meth — cheap, easily produced and coursing through the veins of communities across western Canada. Witness the lengths to which one parent goes to save her daughter and discover a new, controversial rehabilitation technique that's winning converts.
