Hi. I’m a friend of Dave, and he needs your help.
Dave was living the American dream as a top salesman for a big corporation – a beautiful house, nice car, good friends, a classy girlfriend. Then, in the Great Recession, everything crashed. He lost his job, couldn’t find work, maxed out his credit cards, couldn’t pay his mortgage, a repo company took his car, and he was 30 days from being evicted. His friends were struggling and couldn’t help. His girlfriend walked out, too.
So not wanting to end up on the street, he decided to raise money by having a Suicide Party. If he could raise enough to save his house and get back on his feet, he would live. If not, he’d end it all. Once he announced the party, all kinds of crazy things happened, including some amazing personal changes, and he decided to make a film about his story.
I’m here to help him do this. I’ll be the first to admit, Dave can sometimes be a jerk, and maybe the party was a crazy idea. But it’s a fascinating story, and it raises questions about suicide, inequality, middle class people losing their homes, bad bankers, and more.
So I’d like to help Dave tell his story – and with everyone’s help, he can.

And me? I’m Biff, one of Dave’s friends, and I hope to be in the movie, too.
