And the answer is- sanity.

So what's first- the story? Well a son and a father constantly engage in 'activities' but outside of that- things are just peachy. This until the son, Mira, finds out that actually his 'father' may not actually be related to him at all. So finally- you'd think that someone has poked back the incest issue with a stick. ...
