She loved her family but she didn’t love herself or her life, it was a struggle for her and she wanted some peace. Lucy had been to see a doctor but she was not diagnosed as having depression or any form of mental illness. Lucy didn’t talk about her feelings and found it hard expressing her emotions.
The documentary looks at Lucy’s life, the issue of mental health in young adults and the uplifting way of how her family have dealt with such a terrible tragedy.
