If you ever need a dysfunctional family, you need not look any further than the Baekeland family. An aloof father and a mother who is to put it mildly, a nymphomaniac, would put a strain on any child. The effect would be felt more as your terms of reference are not the norm. We see the father living with the son’s girlfriend and the son sleeping together with the mother’s lover. All comes to a head when the mother tries to wean the son from being a homosexual.
The sad part of it all is that this story is based on real life.
Truth is more bizarre than fiction.
