Every friendship has its ups and downs.
Four lost souls – a disgraced TV presenter, a foul-mouthed teen, an isolated single mother and a solipsistic muso - decide to end their lives on the same night, New Year's Eve. When this disillusioned quartet of strangers meet unintentionally at the same suicide hotspot, a London high-rise with the well-earned nickname Topper's Tower, they mutually agree to call off their plans for six weeks, forming an unconventional, dysfunctional family, becoming media sensations as the Topper House Four and searching together for the reasons to keep on living.

Four great actors in four great characters. Very nice movie. It shows you how random events may turn a very bad situation in a great friendship.
I just found out it was based on a book that i unfortunally didn't read before, and I think that would explain better JJ's reasons 'cause it's not really that clear in the movie. They should have explained that better before the last roof scene i guess.
But it was a good piece and I liked a lot the windows on each character's personal story.

This movie was a lot better than what I was expecting.
