Synopsis
Francis stands at the edge of the Brownstone Building rooftop late at night, heart pounding and deliberate, contemplating suicide. Keb Krat, who died jumping from that very building 60 years ago, introduces Francis to his fate if he takes this determined leap. Keb has until dawn to change the mind of this young man so eager to take his own life. He proceeds to entertain and divert Francis' attention with 60 years of Brownstone history.
 
Keb's story begins with the appearance and sudden blast from an orchestra playing a waltz. A wedding gala floods the roof. This is an agonizing accuracy for Keb, for this is a peek at the wedding he would have shared with his fiancee if only he had lived to see the coming year. As the wedding party disappears, Keb introduces Francis to other individuals that have died in the building. He meets an aged, rough, cigarette smoking woman who died of lung cancer. Three young girlfriends that died from a fire that destroyed part of the Brownstone years ago. He meets one of the firemen who died trying to save the young girls and not by choice, Keb shares the story of a young boy's death hit by a passing car as he carelessly rushes across the street to see “Shoeless Joe Jackson” play. Francis also gets the chance to meet a fiery elderly couple and two janitors that “light” up the stage with a little comic relief. Francis rethinks his choices and decides not to jump which earns Keb a wedding dance with his fiancee; dancing to the final curtain.
