Logline

A suicidal man's plans to end his life are thwarted by the presence of a mysterious stranger with seemingly sinister motives.

 

Synopsis

When Sam, 30s, liberates his brother Daniel’s ashes and heads to a disused viaduct to end his life, his plans are halted when he meets a seemingly evil man, Grim. Sat together on the viaduct edge, Grim taunts Sam and impatiently tries to get him to move along with his suicide attempt. Shocked by this (and quite frankly terrified), Sam adamantly denies he’s feeling suicidal. With a cold morbid fascination, Grim ignores Sam’s denial and persists in asking Sam for his reasons for ending it.
