After the death of his alcoholic father, Jonathan Breech steals his father's ashes from his brother's house. He drives a stolen car off a cliff in order to commit suicide but he survives. After this, he accepts an alternative sentence of three months in therapy in a psychiatric hospital. There, he joins a suicide group under the supervision of Dr. Figure. He befriends a disturbed Rachel Row (who saw her mother dying in an accident) and Toby (who accidentally killed his brother in a car crash). During the treatment, the sarcastic Jonathan changes his behavior and sees the importance of being alive. Written by

It's beautiful here.
Can't take all this on your own.
So you are all good now? Too many near death experiences you are beginning to think twice.
You wanna know the truth? If it's a matter of life and death between people like you and me, then I want to outlive you. And I want to see what happens to you. 'Cause I like ya.
I don't know.
What if we are still together in a year?
Would we be?
I can see it happening.
I don't know. So do you think you love me?
I know I love you.

A truly captivating movie that endears you to its characters
On the Edge is a very unique film that you will not soon forget. From the very beginning I was captivated by the story and its characters. The characters are true to life as are the issues they are facing so it was very easy for me to identify with them. I was impressed by the performances of all three of the main actors, Cillian Murphy, Tricia Vessey and Jonathan Jackson. If I have any complaints about the film at all it would have to be that Jonathan Jackson should have been given top billing since it is his character, Toby, who is the true heart of the film.
