The Unexplainable_ENSub

Chris and Ben are two good friends who happen to suffer from the same mental disease: depression. While Chris, a seemingly happy person, chooses to be secretive about his battle, Ben's appearance and behavior make his illness more evident, yet most of his friends fail to take notice of the signs, except for Chris who directly asks him if he is okay. Things take a tragic turn and when Ben takes his own life, the shock causes his friends to discover that they should've paid more attention to the change in their friend's character, and they blame Chris for not having told them about Ben's depression earlier. Meanwhile, Chris, whose fake smiles his friend's mistake for genuine happiness, is also about to take a devastating decision concerning his own illness.
