A Sophie's choice is a forced decision in which any and all options have equally negative outcomes. The title of the film (and novel), Sophie's Choice, became a term for being trapped between two bad options, or faced with a choice made impossible by contradictory rules, like a Catch 22 (logic), which has a similar origin.
