It talks about issues that most people may have thought about but are afraid to talk about. They are drawn to it because it doesn't give them answers, it just teases their mind to start thinking about these topics. It doesn't create a hero, it creates an atmosphere for viewers to put themselves into and think what they would do if they were put into that situation. Hide

That's what make it dark or light. Hide
