The new Linkin Park video is inspired by many true stories. Castle of Glass revolves around the process of telling a family that their loved one has died in battle. The video was shot with help from the creators of the Medal of Honor: Warfighter video game.
In between clips of the band performing the song surrounded by shattered glass is the story of a family, particularly one boy, receiving the news. The boy grows up and follows in his father's footsteps. The video ends with a quote from Winston Churchill:
"All great things are simple,
And many can be expressed in single words:
Freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope."
