Whoever thought suicide could be funny?

Tom is intent on killing himself … but he's not very good at it. After several failed attempts, he winds up in sessions with the disinterested psychologist Dr Watson, while plotting the spectacular suicide. You might find yourself rooting for Tom as he is challenged in the most unexpected ways by the obtuse, faintly hostile and persistently unusual relationships that form against his will – until you remember what his goal is. Sarcasm and bona fide Scottish humour are the order of the day in this straight-talking, incisive and ultimately warm-hearted take on the darkest of subjects.
