A Long Way Down

A Long Way Down (2014)

New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. Martin is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother Maureen, sassy teen Jess, and failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan. Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least. Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this group of unlikely friends as they try to pull back from the brink.

Premiered at Berlin 2014. Released in the UK by Lionsgate, and the US by Magnolia.
