Gene Simmons' mother survived the Holocaust but the rest of her family perished in the camps. Gene 'played' at being evil in an attempt to understand and even control his curiosities about the dark side. His thoughts, fears, and personal demons gushed to the forefront of his being in the form of a hideous, fire-breathing, blood-spewing, death-mask creation that he began building as a young child in Haifa, Israel. Will the search for the birth of this alter-ego lead us directly into the shadows of the Holocaust?
