Is it ok to speak about illness with the most irreverent irony? Can the hope and desire to live take root in even the deepest pain? Can a descent to the underworld be transformed into a hymn to life? This story about Valter becomes a story about the many (too many) children who have become adults within a hospital. They have reckoned with the worst hardship and have brushed with death without losing the strength to fight for their lives much like a newborn who instinctively rises to the surface from under water.
