This short films is a few years old but still fun to watch. This film asks the question is Batman’s refusal to do what is need cause as much pain and suffering as the criminals he swore to stop.
When the Joker escapes from Arkham and murders the parents of a young boy, Batman recalls the pain of losing his own parents as a child. He is pushed past his limits to the point where his focus becomes revenge on all who stand in his way, including many of Gotham’s underworld. Finally, Batman is forced to look at the psychological profile of his own mind and accept the consequences of his life to find resolve.
