You can only save one— who do you choose?
You are the captain of an interstellar cargo transport headed to port when you receive two distress calls. The first is from a labor ship, whose passengers are running out of oxygen. The other from a luxury space cruiser which has lost a thruster, sending them careening into danger. With only enough time to save one ship, which should you choose? Doug MacKay explores this classic ethical dilemma. [Directed by Avi Ofer, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Stephen LaRosa].
