Built in 1913, the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, California is known as an example of Beaux Art Architecture. Unfortunately it has also been known as the Suicide bridge ever since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Recently there has been a dramatic increase in suicide attempts which has caused great discomfort to the local residents and further threatens the reputation of the bridge as a historical landmark. The documentary takes the audiences on a journey to find a solution to deter suicide.
