Giulio, a 75-year-old widower, wakes up bored, like every morning.When he realizes that it is Saturday he gets up with renewed enthusiasm: it is theday of the cards game challenge with his firend Osvaldo!That sense of challenge makes him feel alive, he rejuvenates him: he becamehis reason for living.It's under 3 points. Last Saturday he lost: what anger!Coffee, shaving, lunch. At 2.45 pm he is seated at the bar table.It's 3.05 pm, Osvaldo is not there. He won: the contestant who is not present at 3.00 o'clock loses that Saturday’s point.Inner satisfaction, but also a veil of melancholy.Osvaldo did not come.Giulio knows he will not even come next Saturday.He knows that his friend will not come anymore: Osvaldo died two days before.Giulio can't accept it: 3 weeks and he will be ahead. AND THEN?A deep sadness grows within him, but he must hold on and he'll win that match!
