A family is riveted by the loss of their 18 year old son to suicide. The Spangler family is a normal, busy, athletic, upper middle class family. The dilemma is that the oldest son, Peter, is completely disengaged from family, school, friends; except for his one "hold true" passion...his love of music. While Peter suffers in silence with depression, his parents, Michael and Robin are unaware of the disconnect that perpetuates causing Peter to feel continuous isolation. Peter eventually finds a sense of belonging with the wrong crowd of kids exposing him to an intense dark drug world. This costly decision severely compounds Peter’s spiral of depression which ultimately has a disastrous result.
As the family grieves their unfathomable loss and attempt to move forward, Michael becomes consumed with finding who he believes is responsible for his sons’ death. His obsession strains the relationship with Robin and pushes Michael to the stressful brink where his faith, his family and his life is questioned and tested. Ultimately, the parents come to grips with a discovery soon after their son's death. This tragic journey ultimately leads to understanding that where there is hope, there is strength for tomorrow .
The film culminates with a fiery call to action to start breaking down the the stigma of suicide. This engaging message is intended to empower the audience to save and impact lives by looking for the warning signs of suicide and being proactive by gaining knowledge and taking action to help. Our aim to to take the "mess" of suicide and make it a message of hope through God's unfailing love. Suicide MUST be stopped, the stigma MUST be lifted...ONE MORE LIFE LOST IS ONE TOO MANY!
