Extract from drama 'Choices' in which a young Asian boy is the victim of a racist attack. Here, the two gangs prepare for their showdown and Charmaine makes her decision. She goes to the police, knowing that the consequences for her and her mother will be severe. We see a bleak shot of abusive graffiti and the boarded up windows of their house.

Students will already have made up their minds about what Charmaine should do, so the question to ask when this clip finishes is "Would you like to reconsider?" The power of the drama lies in the absence of easy answers.
