Whatever the message the film tried to convey is very important and very much needed for the time. Even today there are so many short films that explain the situation of suicides and how to recover from that, but still many people are getting suicide because of depression stress, and disappointments. We are not sure whether it is increasing or decreasing. The film conveyed more than 1 aspect which is hard work disappointment expectation and the decision. These aspects are the ones that lead us to make crucial decisions that can turn our life into something that bad.
