The Sea Inside

Synopsis

Ramon Sampedro has been laid up in bed for thirty years, being taken care of by his family. His bedroom window is his only window to the world, overlooking the sea he so often sailed; that sea where he suffered the accident that curtailed his youth. Since then, his only wish has been to bring his life to a dignified end. His world is turned upside down by the arrival of two women: Julia, the lawyer who supports him in his struggle to end his life as he sees fit, and Rosa, a woman from the village, who tries to convince him that it is worth carrying on living after all. Both women are overwhelmed by Ramon's captivating personality, and are forced to question all the principles which have governed their lives thus far. Ramon knows that only someone who really loves him will help him undertake his ultimate journey. A movie about terminal illness.
