Rachel Miller's Diary
A new approach to drugs education
Rachel Miller’s Diary tells the story of a 15 year-old girl whose life is tragically cut short when she is involved in a road accident.
Rachel was a bright and sensible 15 year old girl with many friends, but as the story of the final week of her life unfolds, it becomes clear that Rachel had been using drugs for some time, and that drugs may have contributed to her death.
This powerful and moving fly-on-the wall documentary combines video diary footage made by Rachel in the week before her death, with interviews featuring Rachel’s family and close friends, who are still coming to terms with their loss.
The film is presented in 6 chapters, each focusing on different aspects of drugs education including alcohol, tobacco, cannabis and other recreational drugs. Each chapter promotes discussion and raises awareness of drugs issues that affect the lives of young people.
