When Athos, the son, comes to Tara to investigate the life of his father, he discovers that his father was not the hero that the town seems to have believed he was and that it had so honoured with plaques, engravings, speeches, place signs, celebrations, but instead a traitor, the negative of what appeared to be, where the negative is real and the positive an illusion. Like his father, the son chooses to defend the myth of the father as hero as concocted by the father, that is not the fact, but the fiction, despite what the son discovers to be the truth.
