For pregnant women facing addiction, recovery is rife with judgment, stigma, and a variety of obstacles. Original Body of Pain documents three women at different intersections of the opioid crisis and makes a compelling statement for sympathy and understanding for those suffering from addiction.

Told with compassion, integrity and love, the film depicts the lasting effects of childhood trauma, confronts the judgement surrounding those suffering from addiction, and questions the efficacy of attempts to address the opioid crisis.
