2008. Tony lives in the Downtown Eastside in the same building as his brother and sister in law. They have all been addicted to heroin for around 25 years. Tony lost his wife to AIDS 5 year ago. They had twin daughters who were born HIV positive and were taken away by the state immediately after birth.
Tony is on the Methodone program, but continues to use heroin. Despite all the tragedies this drug has inflicted on his life he is still unable to quit.

"I was given a script in France, by a seemingly rather disturbed young man. Let’s just say it was not good. Also, one night, a woman came in to our yard in France around 2:00 am. I was outside on the phone talking to my producing partners in Los Angeles. She gave me a script called ‘Elle Tue,’(She Kills!) which was about the lead character killing a movie star. It was written like it had been done with a butcher knife in red ink. Also, it wasn’t very good." John Malkovich
