"This film, introduced by Patti Duke-Austin, and based on real life situations, examines teenage suicide. Two suicidal teenagers tell their own tales, simply and honestly while the classmates of a third tell what it feels like to lose their friend. The film demonstrates the importance of recognizing the seriousness of any statement that might be construed as suicidal and to open up channels of communication with that person."
