After video footage of Jay's death is shared on social media, a suburban Vancouver community is left to try to make sense of what happened to Jay and whether his death was an accident or a suicide. Help! I'm Alive explores the aftermath through the eyes of four people all suddenly confronted with who they have been and how they should be in the wake of such loss. Jay's former best friend, Ash, wonders what happened to their friendship and questions the relationships he has now; Winona, Jay's troubled girlfriend struggles with guilt and abandonment; Anik, Ash's older brother, is on a search for the meaning of life but hasn't left his basement apartment in months; and Pavan, Ash and Anik's mother, finds Jay's death lays bare all her personal and maternal anxieties. Unflinching but life-affirming, Help! I'm Alive is a Gen Z and Gen X coming-to-terms story about loneliness and connection, love and suffering, and the moments that bring us together and drive us apart.
