Everybody's Child


Filmmaker and recovered heroin addict, Garry Fraser, takes us on a journey as he faces some demons from his past. In doing so he takes us to the heart of his community that was ripped apart by an AIDS epidemic during the 1980s. The story reveals a poor community struggling with addiction and the spread of a virus that killed a large proportion of their youngsters. This is an open and heart-rending journey where Fraser needs to face some grim challenges before moving forward with his own life.
