By all accounts Andy Irons was the kind of person that would go out of his way to be there for his fans. It was fitting that he was dubbed ‘The People’s Champ’. However behind the smile he wrestled mental health issues and drug addiction. His inner circle knew about it and rumours swirled, but it was never openly reported in the media until his death.
Andy Irons – Kissed By God is a film about bipolar disorder and opioid addiction as seen through the life of this three-time world champion surfer. He was the pride of Hawaii and revered around the world for his spectacular rise to fame and success. However, many were unaware of his internal battles that led to his demise. Andy struggled with the same demons that millions of people worldwide battle with daily.
As the opioid crisis grows around the world, and the stigma of mental health issues is more frequently addressed, the untold story of Andy’s life serves to tear down the myths associated with these two ferocious diseases.
