A ten meter diving tower. People who have never been up there before have to choose whether to jump or climb down.

The situation itself highlights a dilemma: to weigh the instinctive fear of taking the step out against the humiliation of having to climb down. Ten Meter Tower is an entertaining study of the human in a vulnerable position.
