A single devastating event intertwines inextricably the lives of an unfortunate teenager, a weary woman with a critical degenerative heart condition and a team of compassionate doctors; all perfect strangers, perfectly interconnected.
Early in the morning three surfers draw out to sea to brave the waves. On the road they get an accident. The nineteen-year-old Simon Limbres transported to the hospital in a comatose state, where the doctor finds that his brain is dead. He is kept alive by machines. His parents must quickly make a difficult decision about possible organ donation.Written by
Heart-rending, heart stopping, all heart descriptive words
The movie makes me want to read the book because there might be so much more, I would think, in the novel. But the beauty of the ocean, the city from the plane juxtaposed with the wharves at La Havre and the bareness of the hallways in the hospital probably could not be realized in the book. Beautiful. I am obsessed, however with finding out about the music. What was the concert pianist playing? Can anyone tell me.
