Feature

We follow Sam, a security agent in a shopping mall. On a normal day, a bomb explodes. Sam tries to save the victims, until something terrible happens. He runs off till he falls down from exhaustion. A woman’s voice makes him raise his head. She’s one of the victims he saved. She wants to know why the suicide bomber did it.

Thereafter he runs into everyone he saved and feels that their defeat shows many parallels with his own. Even the confrontation with the wrongdoer isn’t that straightforward as he thought it would be. He finds out that guilt and innocence can be pretty much alike.
