:: PLOT

The good-hearted Harbour has spent his whole life trying to take care of his motherless and suicidal little brother, Wilbur. The brothers are inseparable. When in their thirties, they lose their father and inherit his second-hand bookshop. One day Alice enters the shop with her little daughter. Alice is a cleaning lady at the nearby hospital and she sells the books that the patients leave behind. The daughter Mary yearns for a home where the books don't always get sold. Harbour falls in love with Alice and soon all four of them are closely intertwined in each other's lives - and perhaps even deaths.

:: BIOGRAHY

Jamie Sives was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and trained at the Drama Centre in London. He stars as Wilbur in Wilbur Wants To Kill Himself, directed by Lone Scherfig, and has just completed filming The Bum's Rush for Hero Films, to be released later this year, in which he again plays the lead. He has also appeared in Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones. His theatre work includes Lightborne in "Edward II" opposite Joseph Fiennes, directed by Michael Grandage. His extensive television work includes Psychos for Channel 4 and the BBC series Glasgow Kiss and Rockface. He will shortly be seen opposite Jessica Stevenson in Avenging Angels for ITV.
