Light In The Darkness:

A film that offers hope in the midst of despair and suicide.

The challenge — write and produce a gripping movie addressing the issue of depression and suicide while effectively modeling empathy to inspire hope.



Depression & despair can lead to:


Self-Decption — projecting that you're OK when you're not

Self-Centeredness — insistent to prove you don't  need others; tackling life's difficult issues alone

Isolation — withdrawing after feeling misunderstood which can lead to self-pity issues alone

THE solution

Unlock the bondage of despair through empathy:


Compassionate Listening an act of selflessness, allowing someone to talk and purge their pain

Understanding — sympathetic awareness of other people's feelings


Sacrificial Time — making yourself available to be with someone even when it's inconvenient
