Jelly Beans tells first-hand the story of a momentous day in the life of a young man teetering on the brink of self-destruction. As his drab existence is shattered by a violent attack and an escapist binge which sees him running from painful memories and present dangers, can a self-proclaimed hero save himself from oblivion?
