Synopsis for Body Brokers

This is a true and untold story of the multibillion-dollar drug and alcohol treatment scheme where former drug addicts and dealers become millionaires as fly-by-night “body brokers”, recruiting other addicts to seek treatment and selling these patients off to facilities paying the highest price. Utah (Jack Kilmer) and his girlfriend Opal (Alice Englert), are drug addicts living on the streets in rural Ohio.

After getting recruited by body broker Wood (Michael Kenneth Williams), and offered treatment in Los Angeles, Wood takes Utah under his wing and introduces him to treatment center mogul Vin (Frank Grillo). Wood and Vin bring Utah in on their lucrative and illegal dealings, where saving lives comes second to the bottom line. Melissa Leo will take on the role as the resident treatment center shrink, Dr. White.

Body Brokers is set to commence principal photography in August 2019. CAA Media Finance will represent domestic sales on the film, with Voltage Pictures handling international sales.
