Autobiography of Red is the story of a red winged monster living in the modern day. Sexually abused by his older brother, his affectionate mother too weak-willed to protect him, the monstrous young boy finds solace in photography and in a romance with a young man named Herakles. Herakles leaves his young lover at the peak of Geryon’s infatuation; when Geryon comes across Herakles several years later on a trip to Argentina, Herakles’ new lover Ancash forms the third point of a love triangle.
