There was once a city that many years ago, was full of people desperately poor. The rich people did not sympathise with them, except for one woman. She was the one of the richest, and ever since her husband died she had been secretly helping the poorer people improve their lives.
However one day she was caught and arrested, leaving her young daughter with no one to care for her. The woman's arrest was seen as unfair, especially when they discovered she was to be executed.
A small group of people made the decision to barricade the day of her death. However one person, a teenage girl in poverty who was often helped by the arrested woman, accidentally overheard. She begged them to let her be a member of the revolutionary group, and although they did not approve much of women being involved in such things, they let her.
The following morning the rich woman was executed. The city was devastated and the child had nowhere to go. The moment it got dark barricades were built. The police were immediately informed. The head of police was about to end it all, but his son, who was secretly in love with the girl who had overheard the plans, persuaded him not to.
The barricade got more and more popularity, and even the child of the late prisoner was present in memory of her mother.
Soon, people were killed and many more fled in fear. By morning, thirteen of them were left. With no more persuading, the police were there armed and outnumbering the rebels. One particularly cruel man was about to shoot the prisoner's daughter, who was to scared to move. However, moments before he fired, the child was saved- someone pushed her out the way and were hit themselves.
It was, the the police's son's horror, the overhearing girl who was wounded. She could not move from where she was, but was avoided by the enemies. Soon, she died from blood loss.
The barricade was dismantled but declared a victory: many lives were lost with no care yet one saved the city.
