Just two years apart in age, Jamie and Jordan Boyle were inseparable growing up. Wherever older sister Jordan went, Jamie followed. And when Jordan fell in love with figure skating, Jamie tagged along as well. But what Jamie saw as a fun hobby, Jordan dedicated herself to completely, and soon the majority of the family’s time and resources were devoted to Jordan’s figure skating career. Hoping to make it to the Olympics, Jordan worked tirelessly toward her goals. But after developing nerve damage in her feet, her dreams were abruptly halted. As Jordan was lost, devastated, and developing different waves of undiagnosed pain, her doctors began prescribing opioids…with consequences no one would see coming. Filmed through the years by Jamie, ANONYMOUS SISTER is an intimate documentary that offers a revelatory look into an all-too-familiar struggle that has plagued American families for decades: opioid addiction. Blending home movie footage with modern day interviews, this film is a powerful and personal story of love, pain, and perseverance. —G.S.
