On an ordinary evening in a nondescript countryside residence, Jessie announces to her mother, Thelma, that she intends to kill herself. What follows is a heartbreaking story of a mother and daughter relationship in crisis. Jessie’s journey to end the whips and scorns of time explores the depths of mental health and wellness in American society.
