This documentary just deals with the awareness of suicide. I have the same kind of family tree. The only thing that saved all the members of my family was their faith. There was no mention of any religious beliefs in this film.

My son has made it past about 10 years of wanting to commit suicide. The emotional pain he was going through was so great he just didnt want to live. I had to find words that would reach his spiritual side. Hope. Give them hope. Dont let them lose it.

Wow, what a messed-up family. Very candid stuff from Mariel in particular. I really never even cared for Mariel's films, but this story about her family was surprisingly interesting. This is on Netflix streaming currently.
