Jessica’s Tree is an insightful and revealing story about what suicide looks like from the inside, from someone looking back out at those wanting to help.

The series is an ambitious narrative puzzle told through the eyes of Jazz Thornton, a 22-year-old film school graduate, who lost her close friend Jess to suicide three years ago. Jazz pulls together the threads of Jess’s story by reconnecting the people who came together over the last 24 hours of Jess’s life. For those 24 hours, Jess was missing.
