The main male character, Robert Cosick is suffering from depression due to the lack of family love and support along with the thoughts that he is not a good enough man to keep those around him happy.
He climbs to the top of a ledge of a building and threatens to commit suicide. A policeman, Charlie Dunnigan, spends the next fourteen hours trying to talk him out of making this huge mistake along with the help of psychiatrists, Cosick's dysfunctional parents and his ex-fiancee.
Sadly, no one is successful in the end from preventing Cosick from taking his own life.
