The motivation behind creating this documentary was due to the unfortunate loss of Kay and Murray Sumner's 43 yr. Old son, Josh Benko, to a drug overdose.
They struggled to understand how this could have happened and how it could have been prevented. Filmmakers, by profession, they chose to channel their grief and turn their talents into creating a documentary that would expose the destructive path that opioids can cause in the lives of everyday normal people. The result is a critically acclaimed 54 min. documentary film entitled“SURVIVORS’. It is the assembled stories of the journey to freedom from addiction.
