EXCERPT

BEDER
I knew that if I got rid of him, his pictures, I could do anything. I knew that to get you where you needed to go, all such feelings would have to be gotten rid of.

ADHAM
You left them. He and my father. That was your choice.

BEDER
There was no choice to be had! What a ridiculous thought! Choice. What a myth. Choice is a luxury.
