I can only just remember

what the sound of silence is like.

Not the deafening

roar of nothingness.

But the silence we associate with

the natural world in harmony...

The silence that comes from

trees swaying in the breeze,

the trickle of water as it makes

its way down a flowing stream,

a single leaf falling after a

bird has rested on its branches,

are the fact that ultimately, nature

is what it is, unapologetically.

That silence is beautiful.

There are two sounds in particular, that

will haunt me for the rest of my life.

The first, being on the day where

the world changed forever.

And then, there

was the second.

Five, six, seven,

eight, nine, ten, good. Push!



I can't.

Yes, you can. You're a strong woman.

You've got this.

Evelyn, Evelyn...

Do you know what you're having?

We didn't find out, we...

We always thought it would be a boy.

We always wanted a boy first.

Okay, Evelyn.

- Good. Push.

- Baby's right there. He's right there.

There's the head.

It's a boy.

And he's here, it's a boy.

You have a boy just like you wanted.

- What's wrong?

- Go, get the doctor right now.

No, can I hold my son?

Adam should be here!

I want my son!

- Who's Adam?

- Adam is her husband.

He died about

six months ago.

Still not sleeping?


Have you been taking

your medications?

When your last batch was delivered

the nurse noticed unopened bottles.

Isn't that on my file, too?

How is your religious

consultation progressing?

I've decided it's not

really for me.

It's a mandatory part

of your course.

As I said, it's not for me.

Are you still visiting him?

You know I am.

Let me explain something

to you, just listen, carefully.

No matter how much medicine

you're prescribed,

no matter

how many sessions we have

where you choose to sit in complete silence,

nothing is going to help you move on

with your life until you

sever this connection.

Now let me explain

something to you.

Apart from the fact that it is

unethical for you to tell me

what I should

and shouldn't be doing,

at the end of the day, I will never

leave him, so stop wasting your breath.

Time's up.

And, they attacked...

You can see pandemonium here.

We are seeing a national guard

and, you can see

that they are...

Main resistance

camp has stopped...

I brought

you something.

I know you didn't

have this one

and I thought you could

add it to your collection.

Do you want me

to sing you the song?


Round and round the garden

Like a teddy bear

One step, two step

Tickle you under there!

Mrs. Green we have been

monitoring the boy's condition

for going on, six years.


I'm sorry?

My sons name is Thomas.

Of course.

Thomas' condition, hasn't

changed in quite some time.

We've run hundreds of tests, consulted

some of the best doctors and scientists

in the world, regarding

motor neuron study.

We just don't think there

will ever be... a change.

You need to start focusing

on your future, Evelyn.

So, what are you saying?

Like I've said before,

if there's nothing you can do,

then just let me

take him home.

You know that's

not an option.

What are you

suggesting, then?

Mrs. Green, we are running

out of options.

Have you considered




This isn't

a life for him.

You should put him out

of his misery.

He's a lab experiment locked in a

cage, Mrs. Green, he deserves better.

You deserve better.

Evelyn, are you all right?

No, leave me alone.


You heard what I said,


We will give you 10 minutes

to gather your thoughts.

Any longer than that, and I will
