The Case of Amber Gram
Daniel Cooper – Age 17
Adam Cooper – Age 17
In an alternate society based on 1920s hysteria, innocent Amber Gram has created a painting that she believes to be a beautiful expression of her patriotism. In the eyes of her dystopian world, however, it is nothing short of a disgusting offense to the state’s values. The image is deemed an illegal expression of heresy and Amber is placed on trial for sedition. Execution is inevitable, unless the court psychoanalyst, Dr. Ludovico, can identify the twisty matter of interpretation that explains the stark distinction between what Amber sees and what everyone else does. One thing is for sure, however. Following this revolutionary case, The Union of Cannis will never be the same.
