For many years Pascual has had to cope as sole carer to his mother. Now, on her death, he finds himself alone, and hospitalised, surrounded by ‘mad’ people, and desperate to escape. He contacts his long-estranged brother, pleading for rescue, but to no avail. The therapy he is offered seems ineffective, but, with time, he starts to reconnect with his own feelings, and with those around him. However, a crisis point is reached when he discovers that the family home has been sold, and all that is left to him in the world is his bicycle, and his distant brother. There seems to be only one course of action left. Although it deals with the rawest of emotions, and the extremes of human experience, this is an uplifting tale of the capacity of people to endure suffering, with the promise of redemption at the end of the road.
