This video is about empathy for people who are accused of things of which they are innocent. It focuses around a sympathetic letter smuggled in to Rebecca Nurse who is locked in the Salem jail and awaiting her execution day. Rebecca is one of the women accused of being a witch in Salem MA in 1692. The letter in this song is fictitious, but such a letter, or similar words of empathy, could have been passed to Rebecca by a friend or relative.
The video includes images of 19th century paintings and engravings of the events as well as recent images taken in various locations in Salem, MA.
