You can


"The wind came, and then the rain, 

and then the storm. 

It was dark everywhere. Around and inside. 

After that, the world had been ther before, 

was just gone forever.  

It was no longer recognizable. 

There were only ruins. And so, they left. "


"YOU CAN" talks, in an indirect, delicate and poetic way, about the 

terrible experience of  the loss of a close family member, a death that 

destroys the life of a child and his family... a chasm that opens up... 

but it's not the end of everything.  

"YOU CAN" talks about a great pain but also describes the possibility to 

overcome it in order to be able to find a new way of living together: 

"It takes commitment, strength and effort, it takes words and silences, 

and memory. But you can do it. "
