    Andy figures all fathers must be part ogre, part child, part Zeus - or maybe just all Greek fathers? His peculiar little family is on the brink of collapse. His sister believes that men and women should live separately, girls with their mothers, boys with their fathers. His mother is eagerly awaiting the advent of no-fault divorce, when she will farewell Harry Stylianou and all his crazy bullying, and live in peace. But Andy has a melodramatic mind and fears that things could easily end in murder.
