A screenwriter who writes without typing

Here is a moving documentation about the screenwriter Scott Lew. Diagnosed with ALS at the age of 33 means that the brain looses the ability to communicate with the muscles. Even if he lost his ability to speak due to the illness his spirit is strong and he does what he had dreamed of since a little child: writing stories. Writing gives him the possibility to express his dreams and might also experiences he will not get in life due to his illness, like a second world with no strings attached. Beside writing, his wife and two young sons give him a great hold and he enjoys watching them.

In his documentation he compares his situation with jujitsu. Jujitsu learns to use the movement and weight of opponents to form a defense, to use it against himself. Adapted to his changes situation it means think about the abilities left and make the best out of it.
