New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. Martin (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother Maureen (Collette), sassy teen Jess (Poots), and musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan.

Instead of jumping, these complete strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least.

Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this unlikely group of friends as they try to pull back from the brink.
