How does a little boy become a brilliant engineer? What inspires him, what motivates him?
Passion and Patience, twins, are Gus’s neighbours. The girls are as alike as two peas in a pod but they have very different characters. One girl’s… Read more qualities complement the other’s. As they grow up, childhood friendship and complicity develops into love. But how can Gus choose between the two young women? For Gus, it’s an impossible choice – to him, the girls are indissociable. Then the three youngsters take different paths. Life goes on, but the memory of Passion and Patience never leaves Gus… who is none other than Gustave Eiffel, who had all the passion, patience and determination he needed to make a brilliant engineer’s wildest dreams come true.
