Story Outline:

The story is of the character "Markus" and his seemingly tragic life.  He has lived a life of misery, pain, and anger.  Instead of trying to overcome his environment, as many people attempt, Markus is kept from such self-realisation by his very nature, and episodes of delusion.  Two characters in his present, "Rebbeca" and "mother," attempt to guide his actions to asuage the anger that threatens to lead him to death.  Markus' confusion about the existence of these characters, inevitably, leads to his demise.  Only at that point does he realise the tangled illusions and deceptions of his mind had lead him along the only road he could have chosen.
