It all started with a phone call and $1,000.
A mysterious caller offered Arthur to switch off the CCTV monitor at the apartment where he works as a security guard.
He declined at first, but the caller blackmailed him with details of his personal life. Pushed into a corner, he gave in. It wasn’t that difficult to close one eye.
But the calls keep coming, and the amount offered for his silence and cooperation increased.
He has compromised before, and it became easier to compromise each time after.
All morals can be bought for the right price.
But was it worth it?
