The details surrounding the case lead us to question our own prejudices and assumptions: the fact that al twenty-five were involved in the riot that led to the death of the policeman, does that make all twenty-five guilty? Those some of the accused confessed, are the others guilty by association and proximity? Where do we draw the line? As we are drawn into the ethical dilemmas posed for us, the realisation that Durbach sees only the injustice of 14 defendants being sentenced to death without receiving a proper trial requires us to examine our own consciences, and draw comparisons to our own legal system. Durbach's story pushes us to reflect on the very nature of the death sentence, until we must finally ask ourselves that if we are not outraged at the treatment these defendants received, why aren't we? Durbach's passionate dedication to saving their lives serves as an eloquent argument against the death penalty. Perhaps most remarkable is the way she demands justice for the accused without condemning or condoning the violence of the riots - Durbach simply tells their story.
