A small village was about to be attacked by their enemies. A young man who the enemy was looking for ran into the village to hide. The enemy threatened to kill everyone if they did not give up the man. They asked the village elders what to do. They determined it was better that one man die than everyone. The villagers gave the man over to the enemy, only later to find out he was their savior.
