Depressed by his recent breakup with girlfriend Desiree (Bibb), Zia (Fugit) decides to end it all by slitting his wrists. What Zia soon discovers is that committing suicide doesn't end his pain at all, but instead relegates all the Wristcutters and other suicide victims to a rather run-down and joyless afterlife, where everyone is searching for the happiness that eluded them in life.
