Even when you have received a death sentence, you still have to live...This is the story of Louis, who never quite fitted in, and of his younger brother who always tagged along. Two brothers on one final journey together, wading through the stuff that is thicker than water. Tender-hearted, at times achingly funny, this is a moving testimony to both the resilience of the human spirit and to the price of strawberries.
