Henry and Gemma are friends, until one drunken night when they fall out. A few days later, Henry suddenly drops out of his course. Gemma is concerned that this is very out of character for him, and she encourages him to open up and to speak about his true feelings. It emerges that they have both tried to take their own lives in the past, for very different reasons. Through this sharing of a previous trauma, they start to learn the strength of unity and friendship. It has been an extremely challenging period for the whole world, and now, more than ever, it is so important to talk to each other and to reach out if we are struggling. We hope that the film illustrates this. Approximately 1 in 4 of people in England will experience a mental health problem every year, and we need to keep the conversation going. Please note that this film contains discussions concerning suicide and self-harm, as well as strong language. Cast: Sam Todd & Rebekah Oelrichs Written and Directed by: Barnaby Matley A Star Crossed Production
