Ged nach eil neart no lùths aig pàirt sam bith de chorp Birger, tha e ag ràdh gu bheil e an-diugh nas dòigheil na phearsa na bha e mus tàinig e bho bhuaidh an tinneis Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Tha an sgeulachd aige an seo, ag innse mu bheatha agus an gràdh a th' aige dha a bhean, Jutta. Agus cuideachd mu mar a tha e airson rud a dhèanamh do dhaoine eile, fiù 's ged nach eil comas sam bith agad ach do shùil a phiobradh.

Despite the fact that he is paralyzed from head to toe Birger Jeppesen maintains that he is now a happier man than he was before he was hit by the incurable disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). This is his story, about his love for life and his wife Jutta. And it is about the determination to be someone and do something for others, even if the only thing you can do is blink.
