WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

FRANK D'NATO, ALSO KNOWN AS "FRANKIE D", AN ELDERLY ITALIAN GENTLEMAN, HAD EXPERIENCED HIS SHARE OF STIFLING SUMMERS. HE AND HIS OLD FRIENDS HAD GATHERED EACH DAY IN THE PARK SINCE THE 1930's, UNDER OVERHANGING BRANCHES THAT PROTECTED THEM FROM THE BLAZING SUN. THEY WOULD SIT ON ONE PARTICULAR BENCH FOR HOURS, JOKING AND PLAYING CARDS, ENJOYING EACH OTHER'S COMPANY. AS TIME WENT BY, FRANKIE FOUND HIMSELF ALL ALONE, SITTING ON THE BENCH HE HAD ONCE SHARED WITHG HIS DECEASED BUDDIES. ONE SWELTERING DAY, AN ENCOUNTER WITH A STRANGER CAUSED FRANKIE TO BE INVOLVED IN DEFENDING THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN HIS LIFE, HIS BENCH.
