Her name is Lisa, but she used to have another name. She never sees anyone, has no friends and no contact with her family. It’s easier that way. Then she knows no one will gossip. Lisa has just decided to die, when a guest at the café where she works leaves a note. The note says: I wanted to die, but something happened.

What was it that happened to the guest? The question doesn’t leave Lisa alone and she knows she needs to stay alive for a bit longer in order to find out what happened. I Wanted to Die, But Something Happened is an important story about being loved and seen for who you are.
