A common symbol of prescription medication in the U.S. is the plastic pill case. In these ads by VML, a pill case is CGI-rendered into a metaphor for the grim reality of opioid addiction.

The renderings are exquisitely detailed, featuring unique characters and environments. Each character is hyper-realistic with details and features that suggest an independent backstory.

These characters trapped inside pill cases are eye-catching and alarming — a powerful symbol of the human cost of the opioid epidemic.
