What does it take to shape a leader? Why is this shape so familiar? How do we get from innocent newborn to manipulator? What hurt is meted out? What damage done? Who carries the scars? What is the cost? Who pays?
With an exquisite physical performance, an occasional table and chair, a subtle soundscape and only the protagonists side of the dialogue, we are given an intimate portrait of how one boy becomes the man. This is a life seen through snapshots, character defining moments, where personal traits are smothered or defined.
