Synopsis

Worldwide, an estimated 20 million people attempt suicide every year. These figures are shocking, but they also show that suicidal feelings are something that many of us may experience at some point in our lives. Despite increased public awareness, suicide and mental health problems still carry a huge stigma, which stops people from sharing their feelings or struggles. Evelyn approaches the subject of suicide through the eyes of the friends and family impacted. After the death of his younger brother Evelyn, director Orlando von Einsiedel could barely even say his name. The process of making this film – walking and talking about Evelyn – enabled Orlando and his family to address this painful past, and begin to heal.
