Jim Smith was the pride of the precinct, a heroic cop who’d saved lives over and over. But when he awakens in purgatory, he’s stuck and the only way out is by convincing Sgt. Yeshua that his life deserves to be finished. As they rewatch the evidence of his life, analyzing each choice and each fact put before them his glories, his faith and his flaws are exposed for their truths.
SUICIDE BY COP is a faith based psychological thriller that questions heroism, family and finding balance within one’s life. Driven by a powerful performance of introspection and self-realization by Vernon Well as Jim Smith and Ronnie Alvarez as Sgt. Yeshua, this story plays on the tranquility of purgatory (as seen in “The Last Day of Judas Iscariot” (Stephen Adly Guirgis) and “Five People You Meet In Heaven”), juxtaposed with the pulse-pounding action of an inner city beat cop.
