A Suicide Prevention Short Film

$100 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 18 months


According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention:


Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

Each year 44,193 Americans die by suicide.

For every suicide, 25 others have attempted.

Suicide costs 51 billion dollars annually.

On average, there are 121 suicides per day.

On average, 22 Veterans commit suicide per day.

Men die by suicide 3.5x more often than women.

I wrote this script while I was attending the Art Institute of Las Vegas where I was studying Digital Film Video Production.  

Ever since my mother committed suicide when I was 8-years-old I've had a burning desire to help others. I believe that this film will prevent suicides and raise the overall awareness of depression. 

If you're suffering and you feel like you want to end it all and escape the pain, I beg you not to. I ask, like in the film I aim to create for you to everyday go one more day and then one more, and yes, one more because you never know what is to come. You never know what can change.

This film is an amazing and powerful story of spiritual transcendence, perseverance and willpower. 

The ending has a beautiful suprise that you won't see coming and will lift your spirits.

What do I need money for?
