What would you do if your wife and child were being held hostage? It seems that the only option for Mr Ido is to accept his terrible fate.

Refusing to play the victim he seeks out a bitter revenge. A highly-charged, tragic satire, "The Bee" asks what happens when the victim becomes the aggressor, the weak become powerful and the watcher becomes the watched.
