The 5 year old girl Florence can not understand the comatose condition of her father. Lifting his fingers does not cause any reaction. Not even a hint of blink in his eyes while shading his face. Motionless, connected to several hoses and devices. Motionless on bed in a hospital room. In Florences opinion he is dead. To cast out Florences thoughts, her mother Julia tries to explain his condition and creates a story as a last resort.
