Isolate a Moral Dilemma

A dilemma is a problem that arises out of two conflicting needs.  In Quiz Show, there are several characters who are torn in two directions.  Pick a character and explain their dilemma from all the different angles (family, social, ethical), and tell whether the character made the right decision or the wrong decisions.  Incidentally, you do not have to agree with the decision in order for it to be right.  Following one’s convictions is a form of integrity, whether those decisions align with our moral view of the universe.
