Part of the National Safety Council’s “Stop Everyday Killers” campaign out of Energy BBDO in Chicago, this piece titled “Avi's Story” shows a father, Avi, remembering Michael, his son who died of an opioid overdose.

As part of this remembrance, we see a human face representing Michael carved into a pill. This pill is placed with other “face pills” on a “Prescribed to Death” memorial paying tribute to the victims of the Opioid crisis. The wall consists of 22,000 such pills--the number of people who die in the U.S. each year due to a prescription opiod overdose.

Tucker Walsh of m ss ng p eces directed “Avi's Story.
