Their perfect marriage deteriorates as the noise from Apt 102 invades every corner of their shelter, forcing the civilized intellectual upstairs to defend his modest 2-bedroom kingdom against the witless barbarism of his adversary downstairs---a character who embodies everything our protagonist loathes and fears.The moral confrontation is underscored by the writer’s obsession over his unfinished allegory of power, evil and self-actualization. Inspired by the escalating crisis in his personal life, his secret, unborn “child” assumes a voice of its own. As creation and creator dialogue together, a sinister force overtakes our hero, conforming him into the image of his arch nemesis, and propelling both inner and outer stories to a devastating climax.Heady, hilarious, terrifying: this tale of madness and revenge pushes artistic license to the extreme.
