"every one of us is the son of a father..." (Nissim Aloni)

The work deals with the confrontation between fathers and sons.
It is concerned with a son’s search for identity and his inevitable clash with his father’s authority, as in the archetypal, mythical examples from the sacrifice of Isaac to the Oedipus complex. It poses the questions – does one have to murder his father in order to realize his own destiny? Will he always be the victim of his own folly?
