Old Story is about a young man seeking revenge upon his father’s murder. However, Old Story is not just about retribution. It revolves around the idea of a great and seemingly impossible love and personal betterment. As the old Latin phrase “Homo homini lupus” says, is man a wolf to his fellow man or is man sacred for man? (Seneca: Epistulae morales ad Lucilium) Old Story’s main conflict is constructed upon these opposing premises which in reality are both true. (Thomas Hobbes: De Cive)
