Sharon appears to be a normal 17-year-old girl with good grades, many friends, and a wonderful personality - hardly someone you think would be considering suicide. But her home life is constrained by the pressures and expectations of her parents. She slowly spirals downward, her mother at one point telling her that she has no business being unhappy. So, she gulps down a bottle of sleeping pills. She is saved, but for how long?
