At 23, Jade made the life-changing choice to inject a near-fatal overdose of Cocaine and Heroin into his arm. Fifteen minutes of oxygen deprivation left Jade blind, mute and immobile.

The Jade Bell Story unravels Jade Bell’s character and past life-choices; and travels to present day where Jade is fulfilling his own dream to empower kids with creativity over drugs with his own devastatingly beautiful demonstration of poetry and music.
