As James boards the sleeper train to Edinburgh on a Saturday evening, he sends a message to everyone in his phone contacts list, to tell them all that he plans to end his life in the morning. James then turns his phone off – job done. 

But for friends, family and near-strangers across the world, receiving this shocking message is only the beginning of their journeys. What follows is a heart-breaking portrayal of how lonely one can feel in a very connected world - even when those around us are just a text away.
