As a child, journalist Brecht Castel lost his father after suicide. Twenty years later he is left with questions. Questions that not only concern himself, because in Flanders an average of three people get out of life every day.

The number of relatives is therefore enormous and the impact of suicide on our society just as much. Brecht starts from his personal family history and sheds a new light on this social problem.
