Play Teaser Trailer

It’s a known fact that audiences go to movies to be entertained, but quite often the stories that most audiences crave are not superhero movies or exciting thriller car chases. What they want are relatable stories that touch them emotionally. Stories that are familiar, and stories that they can learn from.I
 
My goal is to provide such a story. One that is based upon my experiences dealing with depression and back-to-back suicide attempts.
 
What makes my story special are the lessons that I came away from the experience with, and how they resulted in a dramatic change in my outlook on life, and death.
 
I have since become a proponent of life, but more importantly, an advocate for education on the matter of depression and suicide.
 
The goals of producing and distributing this film are two-fold; 
 
1. To save lives and change the stigma of depression. 
2. Create public literacy and raise consciousness about depression and suicide.
 
Perhaps most importantly, to make it safe for others to talk about this disease so we can start moving forward.  Depression = Press On
