Written and Directed by: Nurfareena M Noor
Performed by: Aizatul Azerina Sazali, Nur Asfarina Ishak, Nurdiyanah Ahmad Khalifa, Nurfareena M Noor
Standing on a ledge. Eyes focused down. Determined on the task ahead. A sudden thought flashes through the mind which causes the lungs, throat, jaw and the mouth to work together in producing a loud shriek, alarming a visiting friend.
Psychiatrist Melissa answers the phone,
"Hello, doktor Melissa di sini"
"Doktor! Emma... Emma hendak bunuh diri!"
She rushes to the said location and sees Emma, a long time patient of hers whom has been avoiding her sessions. Fancy seeing her there. Hasn't her sessions all these while been beneficial? Hasn't she been doing a good job? If she has, why is her patient standing on the ledge?
Summoning her confidence, not only her patient is on the ledge, maybe her career is also on its edge. This one situation pushes them both on their toes. Can this "session" reap benefits or could it be her final one?
She tries to talk it out, as sincere and as objective as she could. Will she be able to do it? Life and career at stake, she only has this one chance.
