I suspect this won't be like any other Advent Children video you've ever seen. For starters, Cloud technically never appears in it; in fact, there's little of almost all of the main characters, and even when they do appear they tend to be obscured or otherwise ignored. Instead, the goal of this video is to highlight one of the more overlooked plot elements in Advent Children: The orphaned boys and girls in the city of Edge. I mean, think about it for a moment. These kids have lost their parents- the single most traumatic thing that can happen to a child. They've also lost their homes and must fend for themselves on the streets. Lastly, there is the Geostigma Syndrome- an incurable disease that causes people to weaken and die in a slow, pained manner, and children are particularly likely to catch it. On the whole, that's one hell of a terrible situation.
The speaker of the opening quote, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, was a German pastor who conspired to assassinate Hitler and was executed for it. I don't consider this AMV something of enough value to be worth dedicating to such a man, but I wanted to acknowledge his martyrdom.
