Alice checks into a lonely hotel room at night and sets about making preparations to end her life, whilst obsessively re-drafting the perfect suicide note.

Alice through her repeated attempts to draft and re-draft her own suicide note. Sat at a little desk in an anonymous hotel room, she tries to express her motivations and sum-up her life and pending death with equally comic and bleak outcomes. 

Intercut with her macabre physical preparations and absurdist flashbacks, the film grows into a powerful study of a desperate woman at a moment of despair. Through each draft and re-draft, her character is revealed like layers of an onion and we begin to understand who she is and how she got here.

As the film races towards its surprising conclusion we explore themes of loss, mental illness and the tragic blank space that is left after someone has passed away. 

However, there are no haunted hotels or killer clowns in this story. Instead this is a tragic and darkly comic tale, taking the audience inside the mind of someone as they prepare to destroy themselves.
