Trying to understand who they were.
The choices they made.
I put in order hints of their characters - photos, letters, my own memories, stories I have been told - for I really would like to understand the following:
are we who we are from birth on or is the character developing according to our environment? Where exactly is the point where someone can be held responsible for his choices? Where starts guilt and, more important, where is the seed for sometimes making a better decision than it would normally be inherent in our character?
