*** Warning: Liv contains discussions of suicide, self-harm, eating disorders, sexual violence, and depression. ***

Liv and her older sister Tess are inseparable siblings, who from a young age share a strong musical bond.

While everything seems normal to the outside world, behind the music and happy images, hides a terrifying secret. As Liv rides the waves of hope and despair, older sister Tess desperately fights to save her.

Their story reveals the realities of the damage stigma and silence bring on a family, and the aftermath of suicide for the survivors who are left behind.
