John Gabriel Borkman
John Gabriel Borkman has barricaded himself in the attic of his house. He needs to gain an understanding of what is left of his financial empire. After the banker’s spectacular rise came the fall and, with it, an eight-year sentence for committing ruthless fraud. He is ruined, his reputation in tatters and his family completely alienated. His son is the only person who would be able to restore his reputation.
