A mother feels that the memories are vanished, at the same time that she perceives of her son a distancing forced by the circumstances. The memory, which seems to be the only valid tool for the relationship, has stopped working, with which the relationship with the environment seems to have lost its meaning. If there is only one memory remaining, it is not enough for others, and when there is no longer that, it is the end of everything.
They end up being two parallel worlds, which link to others and their intimate ones. The disease has broken this bond with the world of others and has remained only with his, alive and well present, but invisible to others. The son remembers this cut link. In the end, they are irreconcilable worlds, which end up disappearing for each other.
