From the image:
L: "It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream. When you have something like a nightmare, you will wake up and tell yourself that it was only a dream. It is said that the world we live in is not a bit different from this."
R: "Manolo 'Manny' de la Espada is a hard man, plagued by bad luck. He sells smuggled Cuban cigars and gambles away his earnings. The last time Manny was arrested, his poor wife, Lolita, killed herself out of despair."
