From the outside Austin Reid has nothing to complain about.  He is a good looking senior, star football player, and has a way with the ladies.  But on the inside Austin Reid is going numb.  Just when he thought there was nothing to live for in life, he hooks up with Heather MacKenzie.  Curtis (Austin's best friend) see Heather as self-centered and shallow, but Austin sees more.  Austin convinces himself that Heather is the only thing that  life is worth living for.  But is Heather really a good enough reason to keep on living, or are the thoughts of suicide too strong for Austin to handle?  (Robbeca Lemmons)
