Synopsis
CRISIS, the second feature film from Nicholas Jarecki (writer/director of the critically acclaimed Arbitrage) takes an uncompromising look at the opioid crisis through three parallel stories inspired by real life events. A taut and alluring thriller, the tension-filled CRISIS puts a human face on the epidemic which has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide and continues to rage out of control. 
 
Caught in the crisis are: Dr. Tyrone Brower (Gary Oldman), a university professor who battles unexpected revelations about his research employer, a major pharmaceutical company bringing a new “non-addictive” painkiller to market; Jake Kelly (Armie Hammer), an undercover DEA agent who attempts to infiltrate an international Fentanyl smuggling operation; and Claire Reimann (Evangeline Lilly), an architect recovering from an Oxycodone addiction who tracks down the truth behind her son’s involvement with narcotics. Together, their worlds combine to illuminate the landscape of an international health crisis touching every corner of society in a story of professional integrity, moral ambiguity, and love and revenge.
