Opening Image1high-tech US military surgical strike vs suspected terrorist;

POTUS approves strike, against recommendation by Sec-Def and defense computer analysis... though we don't know it at this time, we have just been introduced

to our Antagonist, and seen the seeds of 'her' birth be sown
Theme Stated5At right near 5 minutes in, Sec-Def defends his Abort

recommendation to the President: 'We measure success by the least amount of collateral damage. Fifty-one percent (barely-probable match), the risk is too great...' How much collateral damage is acceptable in any fight? How much do we risk in favor of what level of reward? These themes are challenges met by the leads throughout the story. That would be a theme ARIA challenges, I guess... Another Thematic element kicks off when we are introduced to our Hero, who works at Copy Cabana. "What are you? A man? or a boy?" he asks his poker-playing pals on break... Jerry could be asking himself this very question, and it becomes a Thematic force for Jerry to prove his worth...

Another assault on the them of Jerry's manhood is broached with Jerry's arrival at Ethan's funeral, when the mourners react to his presence. 'I'm not him...' 'I'm not him...' Jerry tries to reconcile himself with family and expectations at Ethan's funeral, and thru the rest of the story, proves his own worth in the shadow of his brother... so, ROP elements creep in as well, as

Jerry comes into himself as a 'family' man...
