Canadians are avid consumers of tranquillisers. This documentary, in the form of an ongoing dialogue for and against drugs, introduces us to doctors and patients who approach the issue from different angles. An “easy” pill could be a dangerous one, especially if we take it for granted. (Award: Columbus)
