Then its back to my classroom to watch an incredibly depressing video. The aim of the video is to deter drunk driving. The short dorama was as follows:-
A young married man lives happily with his wife and kids. They live in a nice house which they just bought.
One day, hes out drinking with colleagues but gets a work related call. He's had a few pints of beer but heads to his car and try's to shake off the drowsiness by drinking tea and waiting it out.
He gets another call and decides that he can handle the car. It starts to rain heavily. After driving in the rain for a while, he hits two kids. He panics and drives off.
He later learns that one of the kids dies and the other paralyzed from the waist down for life.
He gives himself into the police after a few days. The young man is sent to jail for 5 years. But He also has to compensate the family of the deceased which ends up being over a billion yen (loadsa money with many trailing zeros).
His wife has to sell the house and she ends up doing arubaito part time jobs to make ends meet. Their children start turning out being affected by the incident. The little girl bites herself while the young boy rips up family photos. The mother cant take life anymore and jumps infront of a train to kill herself.
The young man learns of his wife's death while he is still in prison...
The final message of the story - just a small mistake is enough to ruins ones life forever - and not just ones own life but others too. Dont drink and drive.
I get my ticket stamped after two hours meaning that I can swap it for my new spanking drivers license.
