Program 8

Sports are often a setting for confrontation. A game of squash with one’s boss can become an existential struggle. Instead of searching for his lost girlfriend, a young man amuses himself at a game of ping-pong in a spa hotel. A girl must face the challenge of giving a eulogy to her father, who was killed in a terrorist attack. Wars are waged and their effects reverberate: a woman separated from her family wants to bring her daughter some candy. And while a foreman would prefer not to deliver bad news, a fishmonger decides to become a confectioner in order to sweeten up a budding romance. This takes time in the ping-pong game of life.
