Wheels on wheels: the quintessential road movie

‘You don’t think you’re going to die; and with ALS you know that you are going to die and that it will be sooner rather than later. You are very aware that you have to make the most of it’. David Riaño, a CSIC researcher diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, wants to fulfill his dream of touring Eastern Europe and bathing in its lakes. Adapting a van to live in it, and with the help of his caretakers Mbake and Rubén; David will try to make sense of his illness by doing what he has always loved to do: travel and float on water.
