After the death of his alcoholic father, Jonathan Breech steals his father's ashes from his brother's house. He drives a stolen car off a cliff in order to commit suicide but he survives. After this, he accepts an alternative sentence of three months in therapy in a psychiatric hospital. There, he joins a suicide group under the supervision of Dr. Figure. He befriends a disturbed Rachel Row (who saw her mother dying in an accident) and Toby (who accidentally killed his brother in a car crash). During the treatment, the sarcastic Jonathan changes his behavior and sees the importance of being alive. Written by

Did You Know?
What would you do if you were allowed home for the afternoon?
Get a decent cup of coffee then I'd chop me head off with a chainsaw.
Okay. Uh - uh, just one thing. I wanted to propose something. It's like a pledge between doctor and patient. We nominate a day, like three weeks from now - like New Year's Day - and you mustn't harm yourself until that day. You have to stick to it. What do you think about that?
Yeah, I think it's a fuckin' ridiculous idea.
It's been known to work.
