The Last Message received is exactly what it says on the tin--a collection of last words, delivered via text and voice mail, signalling the end of a relationship whether it's due to breakup, estrangement, or death. Some of the messages have context and regrets, and others are left to speak for themselves. It reminded me a lot of reading PostSecrets or Whisper confessions for its glimpse into the more painful aspects of being human.
