  • House Scene: Gourmet food and full fridge This scene represents wealth and privilege in the beginning of the movie, and the safety that comes with it. This scene is important because it shows Jamie's life before he was taken as a prisoner in the camp. Jamie's life here was taken for granted by him, because he was innocent and rich, and so everyone had to listen to him, and that was his downfall.
  • City bombing scene: This scene represents the chaos that was created when Jamie flashed the flashlight at the ship, and how it affected the whole city. This scene is important because it represents the change in order, and the vulnerability that Jamie and his family was in when the city was bombed. Due to Jamie's innocence, he doesn't know the consequences that his actions could bring, and that was what caused the shuffle in his life routine.
  • Prisoner camp scene: This scene represents the change of life that Jamie or Jim goes through, and how he has survived without his parents for a long time. I think this scene is important because it shows the loss of the wealth and privileges that he doesn't have anymore, and that he is the same as everyone else now. I think that Jamie survived this far because he used his brain on how he survived with his parents, and that was to go with what you have, try to get help from other people, and to keep himself busy to distract him from the real world.
