A mother strives to be the centre of her young son’s universe, “all he will ever need”. To protect him from the Outside, she teaches him the art of hiding, to be invisible, and over the years he learns the rules and becomes a skilful game player.
As a young man, he is conscripted to fight in the bloodiest of wars and returns to find his mother has died. Seemingly unscathed, he quickly picks up the routine of his former life and settles to a regimented existence.
In the end, this dull and unremarkable man becomes the obsession of a beautiful, voluptuous young woman who finds the courage at last to be alone with him but just as her dream is about to be realised, she discovers his lifeless body. It is then that we realise everything may not be as it seems.
