The story is Azula-centric and is mainly from her POV. It starts with Zuko and Mai captured by Ozai and ordered to be publically executed. Azula has mixed feelings on this, so she helps Mai and Zuko escape. The next day, however, she reveals to her father where the couple are. Azula's mixed feelings don't go away after the execution occurs. If anything, she feels even worse.
