It’s the end of the school year and Ben, a student of Dumont High, has committed suicide. While the high school itself is in an upheaval, a few students connected to Ben are faced with additional struggles. Ben’s best friend Chris is trying to cope with being dumped by his girlfriend, while Ben’s sister Regan won’t allow herself to fall in love due to secrets she’s been holding, including secrets associated with her brother’s suicide. And Kira, Regan’s one-sided rival and the most popular girl at Dumont High, adds to the mix.
Although the school is preparing for a much-needed Anti-Suicide Rally, these students must face the harsh truth of their realities while fighting the inner urge to seal their fate the same way Ben did: suicide.
