Anthony Reed Jr. directed the film which stared Que Boyd as the kid who just couldn’t take it anymore. The film focuses on Chris who feels his parents don’t have time for him, his younger brother finds him annoying, and he gets bullied at school. The combo is just too much like it has been for countless children across the globe and Chris writes a heartfelt note just before killing himself. When Chris realizes what he’s done it’s too late and now he must witness the pain he caused by selfishly taking his own life, maybe if his parents just listened.
