Plot – Spoilers:
Divided into three chapters, Brutal follows two lonely killers, Man and Woman, who hope to find someone that’ll fulfill their desperate need to be understood and wanted for who they believe they are. Running in parallel to their search is another regular couple who think they know each other perfectly and have companionship all figured out.
Brutal wonders about companionship in pain and misery vs companionship in happiness and relatively shallow love.
It also ponders upon the vital question: Can a knife cum?
