CRIED SUICIDE

Comedy

Heartbroken over an ex-girlfriend, Jay (Nicol Paone) is desperate for attention and fakes a suicide attempt. When she returns home with her best friend Jen (Sarah Burns), they are visited by their well-meaning friends who don't know Jay was faking and offer their own condolences in the form of tears, food, and even porn.
