The theme of “Out, out”, as well as “Mid Term Break”, is the fragility of life. “Out, out”, like “Mid-Term Break” focuses on the issue of God’s randomness in choosing who lives and who doesn’t.

I believe that the circumstances that she went through were horrible, but it does not mean that she should kill to fix them. With my personal beliefs
