If you know that you can’t trust anyone, scared to live. If you are scared to live, we have all the time to escape from fear. If you know that salvation is in vain that you will still find and kill those who cannot be trusted, then you need to find and kill them first.
But. There’s no guarantee that after this it will be less scary. And there is no guarantee that you will live long.
And that’s the point the choice to live only for some time longer than those from whom you’re scared.
The main heroine of the film not someone else’s, it is ours. It is a product of our life and culture. Yes, that culture, because that’s what it is our culture.

The text of the “Stranger” would need to be included in the school curriculum for literature. The movie “Alien” would need to be included in the list of recommended movies for seniors. Because the rest of the literature and movies forever is outdated and has ceased to be relevant to the society and the culture in which these new young people to live. What kind of life, this must be a preparation for it. What culture is, such should be and the curriculum. Will the differences between them will be next to impossible in this culture to survive.
