Synopsis

(Compulsory Stop) This novel tells the story of a man who deals with paralysis owing to an accident.  Such exceptional situation will lead our main character to face issues such as time, maturity and death. An awakening which brings values to change, the pace of life to slow down and things which might have looked superfluous to be more important.
