"Guilt is an interpretable term. Some would say, that only the person, who directly caused a tragedy, is to blame for it, but what about a person who made the situation possible in the first place? What if a person causes a chain reaction, that leads to a catastrophe, on accident? Or maybe just by an unfortunate coincidence? Sometimes fate only depends on trifles. It all depends on place, time and fortune.
In this short drama a recruit joined the war to prevent as much calamity as he is able to. Unfortunately his light-hearted intention to become a good soldier to secure lifes also prevents him from firing a gun. Not to mention, that he is also way to timorous to be a useful soldier. In the dark moment, when he realises that this might not be the right place for him, there appears a soldier, who motivates him to carry on and to not give up. But the fact, that the young recruit needs help, puts a small chain reaction with giant effect in motion. The question which stays in his head is: "My choices built the foundation for this. So, did this all happened in my responsibilty? Am I.. guilty?"
