In this enigmatic political allegory, "Mama" is a collection of computer chips and wiring who helps rule over a village peopled by compliant (even lobotomized) people, while all the true individuals like "Bengal Tiger" and "Fool on the Hill" have gone into hiding to avoid being killed or lobotomized. Mama is aided and abetted by a man who responds to reports of dissent that come to him on a huge black telephone. The only active resistance to this authoritarian regime seems to come from a cheerfully anarchic young bus driver.
