Calm...

Your feel more and more calm...

Now imagine a screen...

A movie screen that opens before you...

Create on it any place you like...

Concentrate on your breathing...

Helping your body

to relax... Feel at peace...

You don't have to change

it. Just let it come and go...

Come and go...

Now...

You are there...

Pay attention to the details...

The colors...

The textures...

The light...

The temperature. Feel the temperature...

Allow this calm view

to develop before you...

The feeling of peace is infinite...

It's raining cats and dogs...

Are you sure this is closed...

Are you more calm now?

Well, is not easy. With

that view I have in front...

What view?

I can see through your skirt...

You are such a pig!

You know what, I won't read you anymore.

Besides, is almost

time. I'm going to pick her up...

Ok, Ill stand up

and prepare some coffee...

Would you like some music?

Ok, whatever is on...

Ok, Ill leave you with your Wagner...

See you in a while...

OUT TO SEA:

Julia, get in the

car. You're going to freeze...

You are Gen, right. I am Mark, hello...

And Julia?

It looks like Galicia doesn't like us...

Yeah, well, it's February.

How was your flight?

Fine. We finally meet...

Would you mind coming

with me in the car?

We had agreed that only

one person would come...

Yes, of course...

- And?...

- Oh, Mark? He's only here to take notes...

- Ok. Do you trust him?

- Yes. Well... He works at the firm...

Look, Im not sure if you are aware...

...of the step that Ramon has to take...

Of course I know the step

Ramon has to take.

We've talked about it...

Today it's you, then its the press,

then it's the television.

Ramon is afraid that this

could be taken in the wrong direction...

All I can tell you is that Ive come

to do things as best as possible...

I hope so...

And I remind you that for

me this is really important...

Not only professionally...

Believe me I understand Ramon very well...

- Hello

- Hello...

My name is Julia...

You are the lawyer...

This is Manuela. Ramon's sister in law

- Do you want help?

- No, no. It's fine...

They're here...

- Hello

- Hello...

Excuse me for not giving you my hand...

How come?

They tell me you are a little nervous...

Well, let's see. The

first thing is breakfast...

What time?

9:
30. Don't think that

I like to wake up early...

After that, I

listen to the radio for bit...

What do you like to listen to?

A little of everything. Mostly debates.

You like debates?

Yes, yes. I like the party...

See. This is my personal computer...

- Did you design it?

- Yes, I like inventions.

My father or my nephew builds them...

You are so serious all of a sudden...

Why dying?

Well, let's see. I want to die because...

...for me, life in this

way... is not worthy...

I can understand if other

tetraplegic could...

...feel offended when I say life

like this is not worthy...

But I don't judge anyone.

Who am I to judge those

that want to live?

That's why I ask not to be judged

nor the person that helps me to die...

And do you think

someone is going to help you?

Well, that would depend on the

ones taking the decision.

If they manage to conquer their fears...

Is not such a big deal. Death has always...

...been there and always will be...

In the end we all get there.

All of us. It is a part of us...

Why are they so surprised because

I say I want to die?

As if it is contagious...

If we finally go to trial,

they will ask you why...

...you don't seek alternatives

to your disability...

Why do you reject the wheel chair?

To accept the wheelchair
