Their lives revolve around mediocre work, playing cards, and soccer.
But this is all about to change. Ed is at the bank when an armed

speculate that he is a saint. Or maybe even a fool. All he
knows is that he must follow the information on the card. And then
Self-esteem -- Fiction.
Heroes -- Fiction.
Taxicab drivers -- Fiction.
