He ends up in a coma. There, he meets the Angel of Death, who reproaches him for his inhumanity and lack of compassion. Faced with the Angel of Death, Malick becomes angry, accusing him in turn of taking his mother away from him too soon,
Leaving him alone and on his own in this merciless world. Will Malick find the voice of redemption?
