Can twenty-four hours be enough to upset a life to put everything at risk? Is it possible that this happens to a woman who thinks she has nothing left to wait, whose life is a golden drift?

The story is set in Montecarlo, during'50s. Claire, a young widow, notice at gambling hall frantic and desperate hands of a boy, pointing everything, losing all at roulette. That night she saves him from suicide; the next day she tries to convince him to leave and to give up to the game but in spite of himself falls in love with him. Because it sometimes happens to love someone we know will take away everything: intelligence, spirit and courage. But now she is playing everything, risking a noble and compassionate life for that sudden fever.

The portrait of a woman at that moment of life where nothing seems most desperately desirable of imprudence.



"Evelina Nazzari is well directed by Rosario Tronnolone, giving an outstanding performance. If Giorgio Albertazzi could see her, he would say: she's graceful, with  a rare talented gift."
