An Alternative to Slitting Your Wrist
What if every single person in the world took a year out of their life to do all the things they've always thought about doing? Start and finish a movie, make someone's dream or wish come true, spray-paint an inspirational message on city property, burn their regrets to the ground. And with this thought Owen Lowery began compiling a list of 52 things which he would complete, one a week for the next year of his life. But as with any great challenge, it became far different than he could have ever expected. Early on, the viewer learns that Owen compiled this list while recovering from a suicide attempt. What transpires is a moving, deeply personal autobiographical look into Owen's troubled psyche.
