Terrence Roberts and Robin Woods
Terrence: Hi, no, I don’t have a book.
Robin: Well, we can share mine. My name is Robin.
How do you feel in your first day at school?
Terrence: I am nervous, to be honest I feel strange, I never thought that will be like this.
Robin: Don’t worry about what people think. Sooner or later they are going to understand that we all are equal. Every human being has the same rights.
Terrence: Thanks for giving me hopeful words. I couldn’t imagine that a white girl will help me and open her heart to be friends.
Robin: We cannot judge a person just because of others’ actions. I’m not like them…
Sandra and Aderli
A man is cheating on his wife. His wife is on to him and trails him with her best friend. Her suspicions are confirmed when they reach the mistress’s house and follow the two around on a date. Outside a restaurant, the wife calls her father-in-law and asks him to speak to his son about his philandering. The father refuses to, saying it’s neither his responsibility to do so nor his problem. The accompanying friend then confronts the husband and beats him up.
A husband is the victim of domestic abuse by his wife. The wife’s brother lives in the house and consistently sits idly by while his sister beats her husband. During one particularly bad beating, the husband pleads to him for help. The brother-in-law merely shrugs, whereas a neighbor from next door knocks on the door to see what’s the matter, evaluates the situation, and calls the police.
A young couple is out with friends dancing at a club. The woman mentions that she wants to wait until marriage to have sex, and her boyfriend says, “Yeah, baby, fine with me. I just want to be your man, and that’s enough.” He then turns to one of his friends and brags he is going to drug and take advantage of her that night. Another friend overhears this. With the aid of the complicit friend, the boyfriend drugs his girlfriend’s drink and attempts to hurry her out of the bar. The friend who overheard the situation steps in and grabs the girl out of her boyfriend’s arms before he is able to escape with her.
