Director Daniele Vicari

Giorgio, an exemplary student but unhappy in his relationship with Giulia, meets Francesco, a “player” with both women and cards.

Accumulating large sums of money from gambling, they spend more and more time together including abroad, until they reach an abyss of violence and destruction.
