Is it living or dying

In first level it is a very old house (neglected, run down, in need of demolition) ask herself about the meaning of his lyrical form.
A young woman comes in and recognizes the potential and lets light and air into the dark rooms again.
In second level the house stands as a metaphor for sick, old, dement, disabled people in our society who do not correspond to the supposedly general norms of a "life spent meaningfully".
But now there are people today who take care of such people and enable them, sometimes at great sacrifice, to lead a better life and "bring them back" into society.
It is also a homage to all those who devote themselves to the disadvantaged in our society...i.e. social workers, geriatric nurses, nurses, volunteers...
