Gabriel is a crane operator and loving father. At work he is very focused, careful, safety conscious, a master of his trade. He is respected by all his colleagues for his crane-operating skills and is well liked for his good-naturedness. When he is up in the cabin of his crane he feels like a king sitting on his throne and he is happy. He is an uncomplicated person who rarely thinks about life because he hasn’t gotten around much or tried out a lot of things. Gabriel got married young, became a father young. He loves his wife, he loves his children, he loves his work. He has found happiness – but he becomes addicted to gambling. Little by little this addiction destroys everything human in him until all he has left is a big mortgage, a big debt, and a big passion – a passion for wanting to beat fate.
