UCLA Next: Accidental Heroes

9/19/2005; 27 minutes

Meet three individuals who find themselves at the heart of three emerging social controversies—an embattled patient at the center of the medical marijuana debate; a homeless college student willing to lend a face to the shame; a Cambodian rap artist whose rhythm springs from the tragedy of the Killing Fields. Finally, look at the problem of finding love in an increasingly isolating world—never an easy task, for man or dog—with the student film "Wiener in Paradise," written and directed by an M.F.A. candidate at the UCLA School of Film & Television.
