An unexpected bridge between sorrow and hope

In the whimsically theatrical world of Jump, lights flicker, hearts heal, and you never know what surprises might literally fall from the sky. Discover the magic of hope in the midst of grief and the promise of human connection as two strangers find solace on a bridge.
