Audio Tracks 

Two women, a psychologist and a police officer, engage into a challenging mission - to reduce the record suicide numbers in their bucolic hometown. Valija and Gintare provide door to door empathy and compassion, healing the loneliest members in their community. At the peak of fear to lose another life, the women form a resourceful friendship. Together they succeed to minimise the crisis and prove that suicide prevention can be effective. Sensitive in it’s approach,I’ll Stand by You conveys inspiration from a reality that is much more common than it seems.
