The main idea was to tell a story of a man in a situation where the boundaries between right and wrong are not so clear. To do so I put the main character at war, it couldn’t be more difficult, right?!!
So he has to survive but at the same time, he has to be as fair as possible. If you think a little bit that’s why we have some war regulations.
So the question is: Are his actions a survival issue or a war crime? Do these regulations really control everything in this scenario? We hope so… right?!
Well, the main character isn’t sure what to do, I suppose most people who go to war don’t have the time to learn all laws of men that define where the line between right and wrong are, and that such laws probably are not able to cover all cases a soldier faces in the field.
That’s why he turned himself to the most ancient resource of all: faith.
