Ramón Arroyo is a man who lives in Bilbao (Basque Country, north to Spain) with his wife Inma working as CEO in an important company with friends and job partners as Mario. But his daily life ends when one day he wakes up to find himself briefly paralyzed, being unable to stand up from the bed. Trying to know what happens, Inma and Ramón go to the hospital, where the revelation couldn't be worse: Ramón is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a muscular degeneration that progressively will stop any movement of his body, leaving him in a wheelchair the rest of his life. Starting a treatment in the hospital to minimize the symptoms, where he meets other patients with a more advanced state of the disease, Inma has her own troubles due her father Manolo, who has tried commit suicide in his country house where he lives alone after the death of his wife and Inma's mother.

One of the most beautiful explications of multiple sclerosis on movie over created. The movie advocates the disease and all of the negative effects that it brings to the family and difficulties that causes to the life of the patient and the careers. The language is gentile, the set is perfect and all of the feelings are positive despite the seriousness of the disease. I felt totally inspired by Ramon, he offers inspiration, courage and gives strength not just for the MS survivors but to the general public as well. The producers and all of the participants in the movies should receive the most positive critiques as well not just by making story line of such a serious topic but for the decision to produce a movie on this disease which is quite rare in the movie industry. I believe all of the participants in the film should be proud by creation of a movie that will help MS survivors and make this disease visible to wider public. Most perfect part of the movie is that despite of the main topic, it tackled relations within the family and introduced Nino Bravo to the viewers. Music, dialogues, photography and costumes are extraordinary for Spanish movie. Dani Rovira is remarkable, perfect characterization of MS survivor, perfect actor, just perfect. Excellent movie...
