John Halder is a 'good' and decent individual with family problems: a neurotic wife, two demanding children and a mother suffering from senile dementia. A literary professor, Halder explores his personal circumstances in a novel advocating compassionate euthanasia. When the book is unexpectedly enlisted by powerful political figures in support of government propaganda, Halder finds his career rising in an optimistic current of nationalism and prosperity. Seemingly inconsequential decisions lead to choices, which lead to more choices... with eventually devastating effect. Written by Anonymous
When I was a 16-year-old high school senior, I was faced with the unusual decision about how public I would be about sharing my story. No, I hadn’t released a break-out rock album – I’d just barely lived through a massive heart attack, and my heart was running on an experimental pump. My left leg was amputated above the knee and I needed a heart transplant to survive long term. My family was fielding calls from reporters, and some people suggested I keep a low profile for the sake of my privacy, and presumably any insecurity about my condition.
