Synopsis

In this story, two and two make three. Rosalie and David... Rosalie and César... César and David. Rosalie, beautiful and hard to manage had an affair with David; then he went away; then, she got married ... not for long; she went her own way; and then she found César ... César whose exuberant vitality satisfies Rosalie's terrific lust for life. César is a self-made man. He earns a lot of money by wrecking cars, subway cars, boats. He is crazy about poker and about Rosalie. And the girl for him is like a fifth ace up his sleeve. The end of the story ? No, the beginning ! They don't get married and they don't have children...
...especially since David comes back... from long ago and far away ! ... David, who is still in love with Rosalie.
