To learn that love is stronger than death: WRISTCUTTERS: A LOVE STORY

Yup, as the title implies, it's a dark one. Brokenhearted Zia (Patrick Fugit) slits his wrists and goes to a bizarro afterlife for suicides. Laced with brilliant bouts of absurdity and unexpected sweetness, Wristcutters follows Zia's journey to find his long-lost love in the afterlife.
