The show that you see in this clip is called, ‘What Would You Do?’ it is a scenario based show where the team settles up a place and a set up where they introduce their actors in a scenario based setting and wait and see how the people in that community react towards it. In my opinion this is an apt way to learn where our society is falling apart and what the shortcomings are.
In this particular set up the production team took a female actor as a customer who portrayed being a single mother of 4 kids and at checkout she finds out she has no funds to do the shopping. The cashier too is a paid actor who is helping out in this case. When the woman reaches check out and her card gets rejected, she acts well and explains she is in doom if her card limit has exceeded and now she cannot help her kids. It is nice to see how people have come up and saved her at the point of need, men and women both stepped up to help her wither it was a black female or a white who acted as a single mother.
