Plot Summary

A young director's first feature becomes a literal matter of life and death in this independent drama. Gilbert is a film student who has come up with a novel idea for his final thesis project -- he wants to find someone who has decided to kill themselves, and follow them through the final days of their life until they commit suicide.

Spectacular Film

A riveting film! Pay attention Hollywood, this is filmmaking at it's finest!


What a unique film that pushes the boundaries. I was so engrossed in the question of the film: whether the main character would commit suicide or not, I lost track of what could have been staged or real? This is truly a documentary that takes the genre and its mix with horror to the next level, because I could not say I was anything but horrified by both of the endings (yes, there is an alternate ending). I sat stunned and uncomfortable for the night after I saw the film, and I think the filmmaker really did a great job with the writing. Sure, there are some instances where I was like, wait this seems too dramatic and cliche, but it's worth watching to see if the film fools you!
