The Bicycle Thief Revisisted

This is the scene when the father and his son, having lost their one good lead to the bicycle thief — and after the father has suffered the excrutiating sensation of having punished his child one moment and thought he was dead the next — and now to make up for things they go to an expensive restaurant. The father has almost no money left. He is at wit's end. There is a boy from a wealthy family at the next table. Father and son are throw fate to the wind. The next day their lives will unravel just a littl more, leading up to the climax. To the moment when the father realizes his son's love is all he has, and will ever need.
