Glen (42) has become a over paranoid agoraphobe since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic which spirals him into a descent of depression and anxiety. Watching continuous media coverage of the pandemic, death counts, spreading awareness and causing fear leads him to never wanting to leave his apartment. He didn’t even want to let his girlfriend Eva (35) leave their apartment for anything either which leads her to leaving him. He’s even scared to accept delivery food having to wear a mask and constantly sanitize if anyone comes near his door. He lets himself go as he grows a beard, gets out of shape, since never seeing anyone he doesn’t care about his appearance.
The agoraphobia and constant paranoia leads him to delusional thoughts of committing suicide in a few different ways. He does a a few actual attempts of suicide but didn’t follow through all the way on the first few attempts, but only injuring himself in the process by knocking his teeth out. Now regretting his loss of Eva and can’t seem to get out of this dark depression and loneliness that embodies him he decides to make a last attempt at suicide by hanging himself. Tragic irony strikes as the media is playing on TV and announces finally cure for Covid-19 but it’s too late as he slips off a stool and suffocates from the belt tied around his neck.
