Breathless tackles one of the most disturbing patterns in drug use in Queensland today: the inhaling of household products like paint and glue. Through the voices of a grieving mother, a homeless man, a street kid and many others, Breathless introduces the world to the homeless, the marginalised, the abused and the addicted living in South East Queensland.
With honesty and compassion, Breathless gives the viewer access to the thoughts and feelings of those who are deeply affected by this dangerous addiction. While these stories contain sadness and heartache, by the end of this film, we hope that the viewer will also have gained a sense of hope and admiration for the strength of our subjects.
Breathless is a moving story that offers an interesting and profound insight into this dark world and is highly regarded among educators and social workers in the field of drug addiction.
