Nell’autunno della sua vita, Thomas conduce un’esistenza semplice, isolato nel suo appartamento seminterrato, dove gli fanno compagnia una radio, una scacchiera e una foto della moglie. Non si avventura spesso all’aperto e quando lo fa, il mondo esterno gli rammenta la sua età avanzata, la sua solitudine e ricordi che preferirebbe dimenticare. Ha la sensazione di vivere una storia senza fine e per poterla concludere, Thomas deve affrontare il suo passato. «Sono vecchio, e la vita è lunga». In the autumn of his life, Thomas leads a simple, isolated life in his basement apartment, with a radio, a chessboard and a picture of his wife. He doesn’t venture out very often, and when he does, the outside world reminds him of his advanced age, his loneliness and times he would rather not remember. He feels like a never-ending story; and to make himself a whole, Thomas has to face his past. « I am an old man, and life is long ».
