The Steins

The Steins is the story of Casey, Jamie and Thomas Stein. It is the story of an all-night bender. It is the story of psychological terrors and trauma of aggressive parenting and broken homes. Childhoods are merely moulds for what humans will turn out to be. The experiences shape them. The trauma haunts them. The lessons grow them. The Steins is a reflection of all of the above, compiled into a sinister form of storytelling.
