Moebius told the story about a family consisting of parents and son. He declared that he was a lier and cut off his genital to suppress the desire to solve the tragedy in his family, but unexpectedly it led the family to a greater tragedy. The mother had an incestuous relationship with his son. Laterly, the boy';s fate was very tragic.
An outrageous Oedipal psychodrama that rubs and chafes against Buddhist parable, it also chooses, without a single line of dialogue, to show rather than tell its jaw-droppingly transgressive acts with Chaplin-esque distance.
