Dilemma: The dilemma that Corrine is facing is the decision of performing surgery on Grusha's eyes. Corrine knows that if he takes away Grusha's eyes and replaces them with metal lenses it will be as if he has taken away Grusha's humanity. Corrine contemplates removing Grusha's beautiful eyes himself or attempting to convince her to not follow through with the surgery and preserve her character. As Corrine is one who had already received the surgery he reminisces over his own eyes the provoke emotion to one another, he chooses the black and white photograph to look at rather than the colored ones as they convey a sense of realness to him.
