Devin wants nothing more than to die, but his family wants nothing more than to see him live. Over the past year, he’s attempted to take his life 5 times. Each time Devin survives, it’s a bittersweet feeling, knowing that the next attempt could be right around the corner. On the same day Lamar is prepping for one of the biggest auditions of his career, he receives a phone call that Devin is threatening to take his own life. Lamar tries to remind himself that his brother always ends up being okay and he needs to focus on his audition so he can financially support long-term treatment for Devin. As he tries to hone in on his script, the words of his monologue reflect his internal battle, making it harder and harder to compartmentalize what’s going on with his family. With both his career and family on the line, Lamar must decide what he’s willing to lose when the pressure of his career and his family are both on the line.
