Director Statement

I wanted to explore what people do just before they commit suicide. When I was looking up some information about suicide I came across a few articles that explained that 3 people a day commit suicide in Flanders of Belgium only. I was shocked. When I started thinking, I knew quit a few people who comitted suicide. And that was my inspiration to do 3 story's in one bigger story.

After going trough some online forums I began writing. I tried to find a sort of parallel line in the story's. I didn't really want to tell the backstory of each character. But in 2 of the 3 story's the backstory was really needed for the character to react as they do. The "why"-question was not so importent for me, it was more an exploration of their last moments. The first character thinks about life and allready knows from the start that he will commit suicide, the second character dicides to hide the letter of the euthanasia of his wife that is refused and dicides to give her to many pills so she would die without knowing it and commits suicide himself. The last character is someone who sees no other way that die because of the constant bullying. He ends his life impulsive.
