Storyline

Tommy, Harry and Sally have a near death experience when in a restaurant, a chandelier falls on the table they want. This makes them appreciate everything the world has to offer like never before. Even the simplest, most for granted taken things make them sigh in awe. They tell Dick about it, but no matter how hard he tries, he just isn't able to see things the way they do. This makes him so desperate, he joins the annual hiking trip of the university staff hoping to have a near death experience there. Enlightened Sally and Harry start volunteering at a soup kitchen for homeless people. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>
