Walter Black (played by two-time Oscar winner Mel Gibson) is a struggling husband and unsuccessful executive of Jerry Co., a toy company on the verge of bankruptcy. He suffers from severe depression and the usual treatment avenues of therapy and medication have failed him. Kicked out by his wife Meredith (played by two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster), Walter is forced to head to a hotel for accommodation. Full of alcohol and with his life hanging by a thread, Walter decides to commit suicide as he does not see his way out of his despair.
