Thriller drama in which, set against the backdrop of the opioid epidemic, multiple story lines collide. A drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation.

Doesn't look too bad, but in light of recent revelations about Armie Hammer, maybe watching Traffic again should be considered.

The Wanting Mare HD720p 87MB
Interesting looking low budget fantasy film that has gotten very positive reviews for its world building, now available on demand. But it's not easy to connect the official summary with the actual trailer. The short summary is pretty straightforward: Set in the city of Whithren, where a line of women pass a recurring dream through multiple generations.
The longer description reads: In the world of Anmaere, north of the city of Whithren, wild horses run through the moorlands and up the coast. These horses are the city’s most valuable export, and as a result are hunted, trapped, sold & shipped across the sea once a year. For those in Whithren, this trade creates exciting possibilities: the chance to escape their constantly sweltering city to head across the sea. Meanwhile, in a small house, a young woman dies in childbirth. Her last words are an attempt to tell her daughter of the life she will have and her inheritance of a recurring dream that must be kept secret; for it contains the memories of another age long before us, one where magic and myth were alive in the world.
