Àngeles Doñate & Francesc Miralles “Jenseits des Abgrunds” (orig.: Un Un té para curar el alma )
A novel about the meaning of life – based on a true story
On the way to scatter his late brother’s ashes Tony meets Kosei San, an old Japanese man living in a rustic, solitary cabin by the edge of a cliff. This scene of wild beauty is chosen by many suicides to plunge into death. Even though the old man is nearly blind, he can spot them from afar.
When he sees anyone walking towards the edge of the abyss without guide or camera he takes off running. He begs them to first share a cup of tea in his cabin and tell him their story before departing.
At the end of each personal account, Kosei San reveils the song of the abyss, which whispers a powerful message of going on.
