»Marigo dreams about his instru­ment, the Con­go­ma, con­fis­cat­ed by his ill-natured land­la­dy because of his rent depts. To get it back he buys a lot­tery ticket, a pre­cious doc­u­ment which he pasts on his door, in order not to be dis­cov­ered. And as fate decides the number wins! But how vexing: Marigo has pasted the ticket with too much pro­found­ness on the door, which he final­ly has to tear off its hinges to carry it on his head to the book­ing office of the state lot­tery. But there is yet anoth­er obsta­cle: Indeed, he has won the big prize, but the con­trol number indis­pens­able for being paid is on the back of the pasted ticket. So, the ticket must get off, but in such a way, that the con­trol number will not be dam­aged. Then, Marigo has a great idea. Sit­ting on a stone at the ocean he lets the waves caress his valu­able door. The sea on the west­coast of the Atlantic can be cruel at night. Good luck, Marigo. Musi­cian and martyr.«
