Buddhist priest Ittetsu Nemoto has devoted his life to helping suicidal people find a reason to live. He holds workshops where he walks his subjects through the consequences of the choice they want to take and tries to help them change their minds. He is available around the clock and may at any moment be called upon to counsel people in need. In Lana Wilson's remarkable documentary THE DEPARTURE, we meet Nemoto at a point where he is starting to doubt the meaning of his own life and now needs to face his own struggles with life and death.
