Gideon Emery and Heidi Johanningmeier took on their roles that touched a very sensitive subject in America today—suicide.

Both actors played suicide therapists in assisting suicidal victims from taking their lives. However, both characters have far different points of view on how to assist these suicide individuals.

In 100 Days to Live, the film follows a woman who grapples with her inner demons by running a support group in Chicago. But when her fiancé is kidnapped by a known murderer, she must race against the clock to discover the identity of the killer, and more importantly—his motive.

The film stars Colin Eggesfield, Gideon Emery, Heidi Johanningmeier, Yancey Arias, and Chris Johnson. It marks the directorial debut from Ravin Gandhi.

Here’s the full synopsis:

Haunted by the tragic death of her mother, Rebecca Church (Johanningmeier) has dedicated her life to the mental health profession. Recently engaged to Gabriel Weeks (Egglesfield), a handsome and successful options trader, Rebecca finally seems happy. But when her fiancé suddenly disappears, leaving behind a chilling photo album with “Gabriel Was Saved” on the cover, Rebecca learns he was abducted by a serial killer dubbed “The Savior,” who stalks his victims for 100 days before killing them. Rebecca must work with detectives Jack Byers (Arias) and Greg Neese (Johnson) in a race against the clock once she discovers The Savior is a former colleague named Victor Quinn (Emery), who she thought had committed suicide.
