This documentary explores the complex and enigmatic world of suicide, starting with an actual tape-recording of a suicide. Individuals who have survived lethal suicide attempts, and families that have experienced suicidal deaths of a member are interviewed, and three American experts provide the commentary. “The uniqueness of this film is its utter realism. The scenes presented could never be duplicated by actors.” Chad Varah, Founder of Samaritans.
