synopsis

Nicole, a woman in her late 30s, appears to have it all -- a caring husband, two children and a good job. But Nicole is suffering from a crippling depression that, due to the stigma attached to mental illness, she is trying to keep secret. Over 24 hours, a series of otherwise minor events, coupled with Nicole's dissociation from family and friends, lead her to a state of utter desperation.
