A seventeen year old media geek becomes the most talked about student in his high school after announcing plans to kill himself on camera as part of his video class' final project. Upon announcing his grim plan, Archie Williams (Gabriel Sunday) is beset by people seeking to save him, imitate him, or simply nudge him over the brink. But as the psychiatrists, doctors, counselors, and even Sierra (Brooke Nevin), the most beautiful girl in school, all attempt to gain a handle on Archie's true intentions, the one-time misfit knowingly ascends the ladder of popularity while capturing every moment of hypocrisy on camera for posterity. Is Archie truly suicidal, or is he simply fascinated by death like the rest of us, and willing to go further than most to explore the dark truths behind one of life's greatest mysteries? David Carradine and Joe Montegna co-star in a dark, romantic teen comedy featuring music by Bright Eyes, MGMT, The Pixies, EELS, Wolfmother, Daniel Johnston, Radiohead, and My Morning Jacket.
