An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
When pretty but troubled Kaye moves to New Orleans from Atlanta with her mother and little brother, she forges a special friendship with Emily, a rebellious high school senior with troubles of her own. They become instant best friends, and begin spending all their free time together. Emily even helps Kaye run away from home. The girls' mothers do not approve of their relationship, and Emily's mother accuses her of associating to closely with a corrupted and confused young girl. As Kaye and Emily grow closer, Kaye's mother begins to suspect what she fears is the worse, that Emily's sexual prowess has corrupted her daughter. Faced with the ridicule from their peers, and the pressures of their families and conservative religious beliefs, Kaye and Emily are forced to choose between true love and the promises they've made to each other, and fitting into a society that refuses to accept them.Written by

This movie shows the friendship of two teenagers who find that their relationship is quickly turning into something they may not be able to handle.
Kaye has just moved to New Orleans and is befriended by Emily, a girl who is not stranger to trouble. Emily decides to take Kaye under her wing and tries to show her that life is worth enjoying.
During the course of their relationship they both realize that they have developed a dependency on one another, for lack of a better word they've fallen in love. But can Kaye, who comes from a strong religious background take the leap and follow her heart? Can Emily's strength get her to face life and stop running from her problems? By the title alone you know the characters fall in Love but the Suicide part? Well, that isn't hard to figure out but how exactly does it fit? Watch and find out...although it's low budget and the acting is much to be desired, the message is clear...live life to the fullest, love who you desire and be sure of the choices you make - you are the one who needs to live them and no one else.
