David Dastmalchian is a former addict who turned his experiences into a screenplay. “There’s not much that happened onscreen that I wasn’t present for in some way or another,” he says. “I was a full-time heroin addict. I lived in a car. I was hospitalized. Much of the film draws from my personal experiences or observations, but it’s fictional. All the characters are fictional.”
