New Year's Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. Martin is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he's now desperate to jump. But he's not alone. Single mother Maureen, sassy teen Jess, and musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ, 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.
