Vita! I hear you are home. Come to dinner!

Where were you so long?

With girls. In caffe.

Is that true?

Who did call you just now?

Vita? Why are you keeping silent?

What does all this mean? What is happening with you?

You don't want to talk to me?

Vita? Daughter...

We have always understood each other. There are just two of us.

Do you know what I have dreamt many times?

That...there are three of us. Understand?

Yes. There are three of us. And all this repeated with every dream.

But who was the third? He's always hiding his eyes.

I can not make him out.


What happened to your lips?

Answer me.

I just...I guess I'm not a kid.

I'm speaking.

It's me.

Good evening, Mrs. ????

Your call...

...don't talk like that. You know how I feel about your daugher.

I am grateful for that.

Something is going on with her.

...believe me, it's normal in her age...

Believe me, Vita will soon get over this. But if it upsets you so much,

I will talk to her tomorrow.

Thank you.

Is there somehting else troubling you?

I didn't tell you everything, Father.

Dear God...

I protected her so. Is it really all in vain?

Calm down. I think your fears are exaggerated.

Your daughter is a good christian and I am sure....

.....remember yourself in her age. Trust me...

Vita! Vita!

Vita! What's going on?

Vita, open up!

Vita, what's up with you?

What was that noise? What did frighten you?

Can I help you?

I don't need anybody's help, Father.

I don't need anybody's help, Father.

I don't need anybody's help...

I don't need anybody's help...

Bear it.


What a strange thing. It's all on acount of your nerves.

What is this?

That was a spider, mom.

What are you twaddling, girlie? I have never

heard of spiders biting like that. Nonsense.
