Synopsis


"When it stops being unbearable, it becomes something worse.


It becomes the air we breathe."


Artist Alex Macklin moved to the south-western desert, abandoning his easel to make monumental land art.


A second major stroke renders him speechless and motionless.


He is kept alive by feeding tubes and desperate fourth wife, Lia.


To this remote location comes Alex's second wife, together with his only son, who has been researching ways to end his father's life.


With profound pathos and unsettling humour, DeLillo explores key questions regarding life in an age of advanced medical technology.


What does it really mean to be alive - and how and when should life end?
