Jack Richards, a Professor of Theology in his 50s, has apparently gone mad obsessing over the supposed abduction of his daughter by what he believes to be a sinister cult. Wallowing in self-pity for years, he decides to commit suicide. However, the manner in which he decides to suicide is quite peculiar: he allows himself to be abducted by what he believes to be a cult, whose members treat him as their “king” for one year (he is given a “castle”, “concubines”, “gifts”, etc...) and then murder him as an atonement for their sins.
