Synopsis

A darkly comic look at what happens when one man dares ask the question 'why won't anyone talk about suicide?' Director Mike Stutz investigates his mom's suicide by opening up a conversation with his family that they never had when he was a kid. Then he recruits a band of writers, artists, dancers, comics, punk clowns and suicide survivors to put their own unique stamp on the conversation. Teenagers dance to autopsy reports. A jumper gives tips on how to come out of a coma. A comic discovers that suicide can actually be funny. Also dozens of amazingly honest and incredible people open up about their lives in ways that you'd never expect. Oh and there's animation, a suicide band, and parties for dead people.
