In Our Possible Life, a group of guardians are trained to disavow their human impulses in order to devote themselves to an in-person crisis hotline to comfort people at risk of suicide. When a guardian and a client begin to form a genuine connection, however, both are forced to come to terms with the possibility that they are both too damaged to ever achieve authentic intimacy.
