Eric Söderqvist, professor of computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has invented Mind Surf: a thought-controlled system that allows people with disabilities to browse the web.

Eric’s wife Hanna falls into a coma — struck by an aggressive and previously unknown virus — after having tested her husband’s invention. The doctors are at a loss.
