Kofi Siriboe's Latest Short Film Is a Captivating Portrait of Grief and Depression

"JUMP" will leave you speechless.

Kofi Siriboe continues to show the black community that it's okay to be vulnerable and that one is never alone when navigating this life of ours with this new project.

In JUMP, the Ghanaian-American actor and Queen Sugar star paints a portrait of a young black man battling depression, grief and the urge to commit suicide.

Shot in the Bronx, you'll meet Ziggy, who, according to the film's brief summary, is a "haunted man detached from reality" as well as his friend Kree—who represents the people in our lives who are willing to be present in our time of need. Throughout the short film you'll notice a black girl appear and disappear, as she represents the innocence and relief Ziggy longs for—if he jumps.
