Buddy Clarke and Joe Banks have been best friends for life, not by choice, but because nobody else will take them. Down on his luck for the past few years, Joe's been contemplating suicide. When Buddy concocts a scheme to gain money, popularity and a better life for them both by transforming Joe into a suicidal daredevil with a death-wish - Joe goes along willingly, until, he meets the Girl of his dreams. Buddy's staged suicide stunts grow more outlandish while Joe struggles with risking his life or facing his fears of escaping Buddy and the only existence he's ever known. Will Joe and his relationship with Buddy survive as these two best friends fight to find meaning and a life worth living for? Written by Carolyne Stossel
