The Story

The story is summarised as follows: After the patient's daughter dies because of cancer, he begins to imagine that he is his daughter's favourite character, Cinderella, and takes a carriage, a symbol of false hope, but instead of arriving at the palace, he enters his daughter's bedroom. Everything in the room makes him begin to recall. He burst the bubble and is attacked by numerous pills, this is from his memory of the pain his daughter suffered during her treatment. After he lies exhausted in bed, he sees his daughter fading away. Listening to the midnight bell in Cinderella's story, he finally decides to escape from his fantasy and say goodbye to Cinderella in his mind.
