A bereaved woman who lost her two sons, Simon's age, and her husband at the same area, doesn't know how or why they were killed. She grants Simon a tape recorder to record his story, hoping she'd find an answer to her inquiry. She promises to pay him generously when she hears the recording. Simon remembers, tells his story to a nurse and records the events of his life that led him to his current state.
