Your goal is to identity what works and does not work in these ethical theories in connection to story in documentary. For instance, traditional theories (virtue, deontology and consequentialism) impose eternal ethical standards on changing world, while the story in documentary is contemporary and based on ethical realities of the 20th century. Also, the approach of each traditional ethical theory is partial, which means that instead of dealing with all components of ethical action (virtue/good character/intentions + good motivation + good consequences), these theories concentrate on only one (either good character, motivation, or consequences). It does not mean that these theories are wrong, just insufficient. As for moral relativism, it is the same charge of insufficiency: without universal level of justice, it is impossible to explain/do justice to particular situation (like the story in our documentary). Ethics of justice appears to be more suitable for comprehensive analysis of particular topic that we studied in class.
