With English subtitles. The first piece of our „Televised Theatre” series.

Unexpectedly, a stranger coming from the US disturbs the couple’s dull everydays by claiming the Old Man saved his life in 1956, as he was the one warning him of the approaching danger. The Visitor is eternally thankful, and he wants to give expensive presents to the couple. The Old Man is stuck in the past, and calls the Visitor a traitor, and asks him to leave. All of a sudden, we are witnessing a deep, pitiful and grotesque conversation, as the Visitor tries to convince the Old Man of the obvious truth, which the Old Man, for some strange reason, is not willing to listen to nor to understand… [Kvartett]
