'Beyond the Blue Lens' will destroy the myth that drug abuse affects just the user as life and death unfolds in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Set in Vancouver's drug-infested Downtown Eastside, 'Tears for April' follows the short, tragic life of April Reoch as told by the newly-retired beat cop who first warned the fresh-faced 17-year old to leave the street. Within six months April was hooked on drugs and prostituting herself. We follow April's life-and-death struggle: From those first days on the street, through her struggles to get clean, to finding her body on Christmas Day, and into jail where her murderer laments her death. Five other characters, also seen in 'Through a Blue Lens' (1999), are woven into this compelling drama.
