A woman working for a crisis center phone line receives a call from a suicidal older man.
“When Sally Hawkins said yes, that’s when it became something that we wanted to invest everything we had in. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get her for one year, so I did as many adverts for KFC as I could stand and kind of bankrolled the job. We didn’t know when we were going to get the call saying she was free.”
