Imagine a city so cold and gray and dreary that suicide is the only growth industry to be found. And imagine a family run shop - one stretching back for generations - catering to exactly that urge, selling all the tools and accessories you could possibly need to take your own life in any fashion imaginable. And then imagine the shop-owning family's dismay when a new baby arrives. A happy baby. A baby that makes everyone around him happy. The impact on the family business could be devastating.
