Let's be honest,

it's not like I won the lottery

but I could work my way up

with this job.

If you're bright, naturally.

Like I said, you need a good head.

My first day of work

is off to a great start...

Look at the client I've got!

- Anyway, I'm Marco.

- It's a pleasure, I'm Gina.

- Gina, that's a beautiful name.

- Thanks.

What do you do, Miss Gina?

Do you work or...

I'm still in school...

- I see.

- Even if...

I dream of becoming an actress.

- Actress?

- Yes.

Holy cow! For real?

So why are you visiting

the Congressman?

Excuse me, I didn't hear you?

I asked why you're going to visit

Congressman Balestra.

He pulled strings for you?

I bet you're going to thank him.

Pulled strings for me?

What are you trying to imply?

How dare you!

I've studied acting!

Since I was a kid

I've been dancing, singing, everything

and you talk about pulling strings?

I paid my dues in the theater,

got that? So don't you dare...

Sorry, I didn't mean it that way.

Really, I didn't.

You know...

the Congressman...

is a distant relative of my mom's.

He heard I'm trying

to get into show biz and...

he wants to help me out.

Is there anything wrong with that?

No, of course not, nothing at all.

- He just wants to help you out...

- I don't even know him.

Damn these things

and whoever invented them!


Good morning.

Yes, she's here with me

Yes, everything is fine.

No, no problem...


All right, let me know.


The Congressman's secretary

said unfortunately

he can't see you because

he has an important meeting

which might be prolonged,

they apologize.

They'll keep us posted though.

They told me to take you

anywhere you want.

So where do you want to go, miss?

I'm at your service!

- I want to go home.

- Home?

- Yes.
