The man, all of his life was revenge-----
The motif of this story is the “The Count of Monte Cristo” written by Alexandre DUMAS. It was written as a sprawling revenge story set in a fictitious ancient state laden with conspiracy to expose human karma that only leads to repeated mishaps.
The endless human drama around revenge was directed to a delicate & dynamic stage performance.
