"There are moments in life when we have to make hard choices between our roles as private individuals and as citizens with a sense of nationality loyalty."
We are private individual. However at the same time we are also the citizens of our country. It is said that individual should sacrifice for his country because country is above everything. But time comes when it become hard to decide which option one should choose. For example, a Doctor XXX (supposed) is torn between human compassion on one hand and loyalty to the country on the other. He is a reputed doctor. He has been taught that it is duty of a doctor to save the life of a dying person. He picks up an enemy soldier who is really badly wounded though he knows the consequences. His servants leave his household. He treats the American soldier. Finally, the General (supposed) come to know about it. he offers Doctor XXX to get rid if the soldier by getting him murdered during the night. Doctor XXX is torn between his duty as a doctor and as an ordinary citizen of the country. He remains silent. He reluctantly helps the enemy soldier to escape finally. However, he had given a chance to the General to murder to the General to murder him. Doctor XXX's condition is understandable. Any good citizen and a good human being will act like him in such a circumstance.
It is the time of the World War. An American prisoner of war is washed ashore in a dying state and thrown into the doorstep of a Japanese doctor. Should he save him as a doctor or hand him over to the Army as a patriot?
