Na sequência de um problema de saúde aparentemente ligeiro que se foi agravando, Dylan Dog acaba num hospital, entre a vida e a morte. É este o pretexto para Roberto Recchioni e Massimo Carnevale abordarem o maior medo do ser humano - a morte - e tudo que existe entre nós e ela, e também os limites que a medicina deve estabelecer - ou não.
Esta história foi premiada no "The Ghastly Awards de 2016". Considerada a melhor história de Dylan dog dos últimos 20 anos.
