The equality - and "raison d'etre" - of light and shadow
in human lives.
One unconsciously chosen path that is mired in the shadow realm observes three different paths in the present as they try to escape the fog of their haunted, ancestral past. The shadow figure having no power to retrospectively change either her own or one of the descendants' paths shows the volatility of life and the uselessness of trying to influence the future.
In conclusion, there is no right or wrong path, no determination of how much suffering must be involved to escape or break with the past, just each one's chosen life path to individual fulfillment.
