In restorative encounters the parties to crime are given opportunities to present and receive additional information that can significantly modify their understanding of what took place and why. This may resolve some issues for them, but it can also raise others.

Late Fragment’s interactive design gives viewers the opportunity to share in that process of discovery. Its complete running time is 168 minutes, but viewers decide how much of the complete story they wish to know. This adds layers of complexity as well as comprehensiveness as each of the stories unfold. Viewers witness the circumstances and humanity of the three characters who have been caught up in crime, and users may even change portions of the story.
