Hawaiian Ice

In rural areas of the Big Island, being a heroin addict can be hard, with the drug often is short supply. Addicts Jack and Phoenix live with their two dogs and a cat, in their beat up car. Life for them consists of finding money for dope, scoring dope, shooting up and finding somewhere to park up and sleep for the night.  When theyre high, Hawaii can seem like paradise, but when theyre craving heroin, it feels like hell.
