Jonas realizes that he can’t proceed as planned when his father tells him that they are going to have Gabriel released because he cried all night that the Nurturing Center. Jonas decides to flee at once and to take Gabriel with him. He takes his father’s bicycle, because it had the child seat attached to the back. He rides at night and sleeps at daytime always transmitting soothing memories to Gabe to make him sleep quietly. After some time of riding and hiding they leave the area of the communities and do no longer see signs of human habitation. The road becomes narrower and bumpy. He no longer fears the searchers, but the unfamiliar landscape with it’s unknown, hidden perils. Jonas twists his ankle scrapes his knees when he falls off his bike. He reaches the limits of his strength. Everything he sees is new to him and surprises him after a life of Sameness and predictability. The journey gets increasingly strenuous since they run out of food and the weather worsens till it finally snows. Jonas keeps them going by transmitting memories of food, warmth and joy. In the end on top of a hill almost at the end of his strength Jonas suddenly begins to feel happy and memories of joy flood through him. And that he remembers the place is a memory of his own. They find a sled and with a heart full of hope they start down. This sled makes its way to Elsewhere, a world with lights, colours, memories and where love is celebrated. For the first time he hears music and feels being expected. He even hears music from the place he left, but is not sure if it’s only an echo.
