 Harpooned Soul – the Jade Bell story captures the engrossing reality of a man who is fighting a heart-breaking and personal war against drug-addiction among youth.

At 23, Jade made the life-changing choice to inject a near-fatal overdose of Cocaine and Heroin into his arm. Fifteen minutes of oxygen deprivation left Jade blind, mute and immobile.

I can save lives, but I can’t do it alone.
