Setting: police interrogation room, unknown place, present day
Mood: dark & depressing
Plot line: Katurian, a writer, has created terrible stories about the deaths of young children. The stories are then acted out upon real children, and Katurian and his brother are accused of the murders.
Katurian: writer, disturbed by the torture his parents inflicted upon his brother
Michal: Katurian’s brother, looks up to Katurian
Tupolski: the good cop interrogating Katurian & Michal
Ariel: the aggressive cop interrogeting Katurian & Michal
Katurian and Michal are being held in an interrogation room and are questioned by two police officers about murders that acted out Katurian’s disturbed stories. When Katurian hears Michal screaming, he insists on seeing him. Katurian then learns his brother admits to three of the murders, after he, himself, had denied it (Katurian in fact did not murder anyone).
Katurian kills his brother, Michal, and admits to three of the murders. However, he answers a question incorrectly and the policemen start to suspect him of not killing the children. The policemen end up punishing Katurian for killing his brother and parents.
He would be classfied as a static character because he doesn’t go through a change during the story.
Katurian’s entire life revolved around death and torture. His parents tortured his brother when his was a young boy and in order to get back at them, Katurian killed them. Katurian ends up, later, killing his own brother. If Katurian’s parents did not torture and ruin Michal, Katurian might not have been as disturbed.
