Through RED and WOLF'S relationship, as told through the character of the M.C./DEVIL, RED becomes consumed by all that is around her, leaving the DEVIL to start misleading her through the deep dark forest, taking her off the path on the way to Granny's house. The WOLF is transformed by the DEVIL from boy to man becoming animalistic, controlling, and manipulative. As the relationship plummets into something RED can't control, she descends into madness as the WOLF devours her, body and soul. In one last attempt to save her life, RED regains power from the DEVIL, battles the WOLF for her territory, and axes the WOLF to death. BUT did the DEVIL actually exist or is RED playing both roles?
