In 2000, Kevin Hines jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge in a suicide attempt. He survived and now fosters a bridge of hope between life and death for people caught in the pain of living with serious mental illness and difficult life circumstances.
The film chronicles Hines’s personal journey and the ripple effect it has on those who have been impacted by his suicide attempt and his life’s work since. The film highlights the stories of individuals and families who are using their personal tragedy to bring hope and healing to others.
