This particular work shows that the conflict between the government and the leftist group is always a struggle. Differing values and beliefs resulting to violence may lead to more victims than victories.

The Seige is a piece that represents the dualities of a man whose obligation is to follow his ruler/leader. As a soldier, he needs to project a strong character, firm and committed to his tasks. On one hand, and: he is also human, and can be saddened by the power struggles he witnesses.
