“Painkillers” tells the story of a military unit trying to recover memories of a mission gone wrong. With the dubious guidance of Dr. Troutman (Colm Feore) and haunted by flashbacks of snowy battlefields in Afghanistan, the soldiers try to piece together what happened and soon suspect that nothing is at it seems. Shot over 15 days in Calgary and Drumheller, which subs in for Afghanistan, Painkillers also stars Battlestar Galactica’s Tahmoh Penikett, Lesley-Ann Brandt from Spartacus and Bitch Slap’s Julia Voth as the desperate soldiers. Calgary native Erica Durance of Saving Hope plays Penikett’s wife.
