    • Synopsis
    • Consumed with hatred against her husband for his long infidelity, the wife takes revenge against the husband but only inflicting a fatal wound to the son, and then disappears with guilt. For the son who has become miserable because of himself, the father tries, only to realize that it is not recoverable, so he cuts off his manhood which is the source of all the misery and dedicates himself entirely for his son. As a result, the wound somewhat recovers, but when the wife returns home one day, the family is driven towards a more horrific destruction.
