THE STORY

SET IN MYRTLE BEACH, SC, OCEAN BOULEVARD TELLS THE STORY OF AN ANGUISHED MAN, JONATHAN, IN THE THROES OF A RELAPSE ON HEROIN. AS JONATHAN'S DOWNWARD SPIRAL PROGRESSES, WE SEE A COLORFUL BEACH TOWN WITH TWO SIDES- FROM ITS VIBRANT TOURIST ATTRACTIONS TO ITS DRUG-RIDDLED UNDERBELLY.

 

THIS SHORT FILM IS INSPIRED BY THE TRUE EVENTS OF THREE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE NOW IN RECOVERY FROM HEROIN ADDICTION. WILLIAM, JONATHAN, AND BOBBY HAVE ALL GONE ON TO DO INCREDIBLE WORK TO HELP OTHERS IN RECOVERY.

 

 THE DEATH TOLL OF THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC IS THE   EQUIVALENT OF 9/11 HAPPENING EVERY THREE WEEKS 

THE EPIDEMIC

MORE THAN 72,000 AMERICANS DIED FROM DRUG OVERDOSE IN 2017. NEARLY 50,000 OF THOSE FATALITIES INVOLVED OPIOIDS.

IN 2018, 1,103 FATAL DRUG OVERDOSES OCCURRED IN SOUTH CAROLINA, 816 INVOLVING OPIOIDS. 85 OF THOSE DEATHS OCCURRED IN HORRY COUNTY ALONE. 

 

OUR TICKETS CHANGE LIVES

PROCEEDS FROM OCEAN BOULEVARD TICKET SALES SUPPORT A SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR A 3 MONTH LONG PROGRAM AT A LOCAL TREATMENT CENTER. OUR GOAL IS TO JUMPSTART THE PROCESS FOR THOSE WHO ARE SEEKING RECOVERY AND DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO TREATMENT. WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN #MAKEWAVES OF CHANGE DURING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC.

DONATIONS ARE MADE OUT TO OUR NONPROFIT PARTNER AND FISCAL SPONSOR MIDLANDS RECOVERY CENTER. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW.
