AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Two young children on a stage play games to distract themselves. Off-stage and unheard their parents are having a very famous showdown. At some inevitable moment in the next hour the children will be drawn away from their games and into their parents' bitter argument. From there they will enter mythology as the most tragic siblings of all time.'
