Julio Lumbreras was one of the first patients to enter an ICU in Spain with COVID-19. For 57 days, he fought the disease while there was still no pandemic. But when Julio emerges from his coma, the world is unrecognisable: lockdowns, restrictions, and over 25,000 deaths in the country. The protagonist’s family were waiting for his recovery and talking on WhatsApp. This family messaging became the basis for a story about a fight against the disease.
