As in gamble, Guardami più forte (Look at me more straightly) is a ceaseless date with life.
Four protagonists - all of them with some card up in their sleeves – with their life experiences, their incertitude of future. They confront two at a time, never encountering all together, unaware that all of them are disputing the same date with destiny.
Jean, a middle-aged French journalist, will play the coward's card in his hand: the escape. Laura, an attractive woman, will find the most unlucky card: the death. Davide, a well-born boy, will refuse the stake and withdraw into his most intimate private: the silence. Eventually, Pauline, the young and wonderful Parisian, will try to close the match with her faith.
