From the first image onwards, the audience is blown away by the violence of the young criminal and the helplessness of the victims. The strength of the film lies in the path that it shows to face this helplessness and the inability of the young man to control his aggression, a reflection of his anxiety. Misconduct must lead to reparation. But first there must be repentance. Only forgiveness - requested and accepted - can change rage into courage, but at what cost?
