The new, dramatic short film by award-winning filmmaker L. Marcus Williams, inspired by his own experience as both a crisis hotline operator and a survivor of attempted suicide.

She is a woman in despair who calls a suicide hotline — not for help, but to say goodbye. He is the operator who takes her call, who must do everything he can to keep her on the line. Will he lose her, or will she find the will to live?

Winner of a Student Grant Award from the National Board of Review, LIFELINE is a loving tribute to the people who fight for us and to the survivor in all of us.
