About A Long Way Down
Four comically mismatched lost souls find each other in the depths of their despair and decide to give themselves one last chance to make their lives better. Martin (Pierce Brosnan) was a popular, wealthy TV presenter with a wife and children who had an affair with a a fifteen-year-old girl and ruined his career. Upon being released from prison he attempts to rebuild his life but eventually decides to commit suicide by jumping from a London tower block. Before he can jump he meets Maureen (Toni Collette), a lonely single mother overwhelmed by the responsibility of caring for her disabled son, Jess (Imogen Poots), a teenager who alienates her family with her blunt manner and JJ (Aaron Paul), a former musician who now makes a living as a pizza delivery boy. All four are at their wits end but they form a support group as they try to solve their problems.
