Luke was a well-liked, successful Harvard sophomore. His suicide caught his community by surprise.
We filmed Luke’s parents as they poured through Luke’s journals, talked with his friends, and unearthed his depression and pain. What Luke’s parents have done, in letting others enter into their grief and guilt, is special.
Through this experience, Luke’s parents have come to understand the seriousness of depression and have made it their goal to break the stigma of mental illness in the Asian American community. To date, we have reached over 4,000 individuals at our screenings and generated hundreds of hours of discussions around mental health.
