"Can ten minutes change your life?"

`Self defense and defense of others (in the United States called alter ego defense or defense of a third person) convert what would otherwise have been tortious or criminal acts into excused (sometimes termed justified) acts when committed for the purpose of protecting oneself or another person. This necessarily includes the use of violence and, sometimes, deadly force.' - Source:

In America there is often a misunderstanding of the definition of `self-defense' as it relates to a legal defense of the use of physical violence. `The Knife' examines the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator of murder in such a situation as well as the dynamics that extend beyond the `heat of the moment'. What people are saying

"direction was good, as was the music." - Patrick Thompson
