Turning synopsis
On his birthday, Robert receives three beautiful old birds in his mother's sitting room. Through his eyes, we visit the memory of this afternoon...tea is sipped , and between knobbly knees strange visions appear. The ladies weave an extraordinary tale of an emperor with no skin, and the boy himself, older and wiser, adds the finale... with a tail.
