When cutting an umbilical cord requires a butcher’s saw and taking a shower turns into a physical impossibility, life can be a continual heartache. In the world of Fragile owning a piece of fruit can be a killing matter. And who does the fat blue Buddha think he is, God? Conception is Sinful / Birth a punishment / Life hard labour / Death inevitable.
