"Five. Four. Three. Two. One.

Fumes. Gas. Pills. Rope. Wrists.

Five. Four. Three. Two. One."

Cecilia Lisbon tried to kill herself. The second time she succeeded.

In the aftermath of her death her family continue to live but the teenagers living alongside the four remaining Lisbon sisters attempt to make sense out of the thirteen year old's senseless suicide.

One year after Cecilia's death, all of the Lisbon daughters

will have taken their own lives. But why?

This adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides' infamous novel cuts deep into small-town suburban life, examining the ennui, cynicism and loss of innocence that defined adolescence in the United States during the years leading up to the turn of the century.
