    In the story, the old man’s dilemma is whether to stay with his animals, whom he considers his family, or whether to flee towards Barcelona to save his own life, where he knows “no one in that direction.” The old man’s dilemma reveals how thoughtful he is of his animals. He cares more about his animals that his own life and his hesitating to flee. His moral dilemma reveals his nature, which is that despite being a victim of the war, he’s the embodiment of humanity and cares for his animals like his own family.
