Ethical dilemma: Would you lie?
Your plan to set up your friend Carey with your acquaintance Emerson is finally coming together. You've made them a dinner reservation, but suddenly realize that there's a problem: Carey is always late. You really want this relationship to work— what if you told Carey dinner was at 6 instead of 6:30, so they arrived on time? Is it okay to lie? Sarah Stroud explores this classic ethical dilemma. [Directed by Avi Ofer, narrated by Pen-Pen Chen, music by Jarrett Farkas].
