Fourteen years ago, due to a stroke, Hélder Ferreira turned quadriplegic. Doctors gave him no more than a few days to live. Imprisoned inside his body, he only moves one eyelid and with the thumb of the left hand, he does an almost imperceptible movement. However, with the help of a computer software, he can connect with the outside world and do what he loves: listen to music and write.
