A feel-good film about suicide!

After many failed attempts at suicide, twenty-something Tom comes to the conclusion that he needs to think outside the box. Clearly, his lack of success is due to his lack of creativity. If he’s going to “go out,” he’s going to make his exit memorable. Between assisting a grumpy old kook, his therapy sessions with a dry, apathetic therapist, and his apparent stalker, things couldn’t get worse. Tom struggles to come to grips with his reasons for his self-destructive nature, develops relationships with those around him, and tries to come up with the Spectacular Suicide. Can Tom shake loose this mortal coil, or will he give up and choose life? A truly twisted dark comedy with a surreal tinge and a surprisingly uplifting story.
