A 24-year-old from a traditional Muslim family in Mumbai goes to work secretly as a suicide prevention counsellor. On her first day, she encounters a 52-year-old man, standing atop a high-rise, wanting to jump. In trying to bring him down, she discovers that he has been a Suicide Prevention Counsellor for 15 years. But what happens when those who are tasked with listening and supporting have the largest burden to bear themselves?

At a time when mental health is arguably more important than it’s ever been with so much of the world struggling through unprecedented times, Not Today seeks to foster important discussions with warmth and compassion. It’s a simple message, but a beautiful one – sometimes what people really need is a conversation and to know that someone cares enough to just listen.

This screening will include a Q&A with the filmmakers.
