A film about suicide prevention with a focus on the LGBTQ community will start filming in Charlotte in September. Filmmaker Esmeralda James is raising funds to pay actors and crew before production starts.

James has a background in audio mixing and recording, but for this project she wrote the script.

Any funds raised beyond the cost of making the film will be donated to local charities, including Time Out Youth Center.
