Guido is born in Pétange/Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg on December 7th, 1959. At the age of 12, he is sent to a boarding school in Arlon/Belgium for three long years. His return to Pétange marks the beginning of his downward spiral. He starts selling heroin to pay for his own consumption and is rapidly confronted with the justice department.
The occurrence marking his life forever occurs when he's 20 years old. Trying to escape from a police department, where he was just brought to, Guido throws himself head first off an eight-meter high wall. He miraculously survives the fall, but remains paralyzed for the rest of his life.
At the re-education center, despite the wheelchair he's stuck to day after day, his addiction remains as lively as ever.
