Several Ways to Die Trying is an independent film made in 420 by a group of college students and recent graduates.
Several Ways to Die Trying is about a young man who wants to kill himself when no one will publish his first novel, a choose-your-own-adventure book where the outcome is always death, but can't because he has writer's block on his suicide note. While hiking to try to clear his head he encounters Molly Usie, an outcast who is determined to befriend him.
Eventually he falls for Molly, but has to decide if she's worth living for.
