Cocaine, sodium bicarbonate and water. The mixture of these substances is the basis for crack, a drug that stirs a social, constabulary and political debate in society. The Unveiling Crack series addresses the issue through a different perspective: science, as opposed to the vision of who is immersed in this universe, the user. On one hand, crack users as parents, working women and youth with dreams. On the other, data that often shows that addiction is not generated by the drug itself but by unemployment, poor education and lack of perspective in the life of that citizen. In each chapter, the series follows the daily lives of two characters. The first, an addicted user who may already be a long term user, a recent addict, a mother, a father, middle class, among other profiles. The second has the drug somehow involved in their daily life: a former drug dealer, a relative, a health professional or a merchant who has his business near a crack distribution site. Between one story and the next, researchers from various fields tailor the narrative using collected testimony and help unravel this universe.
When he was a child, Vicente, son of Northeastern migrants, lives in SÃ£o Pauloâ€™s Zona Norte and witnesses an event that will mark his life forever: the tragic death of his mother, victim to the lack of medical assistance. Still in his arms, he makes her a promise: to become a professional doctor. â€œYou make me proud, Vicente,â€ says the mother, just before dying. Vicente grows up dedicated, studying obsessively, revealing a great talent for medicine. Without financial support to attend a respected college, he concludes his studies in an obscure college. In spite of that, his great talent grants him a job as a resident doctor in a private hospital. There he starts to be segregated due to his social origins and witnesses for the first time, the excellent conditions the upper class has while undergoing treatment. Refusing to accept the awful conditions of public health services, he makes a radical decision: to set up a clandestine practice in his own house, where he starts treating the destitute and the marginalized, with the few resources he can gather, undercover, from the hospital. Then, he starts living between two opposing worlds: in one, he tries everything to be promoted and have his talent acknowledged in the hospital; in the other, he clandestinely sees the unassisted in his improvised practice. He wants to seek the cure for a sick world and he also wants to fulfill the promise made to his mother of becoming a respected doctor (the cure to his own dramas and dreams).
However, if he is promoted in the hospital, heâ€™ll need to shut down his practice. And if they find out about the practice, he loses his job in the hospital. Which of these paths will Vicente choose?
