Milk

Family, Children’s, Feel Good, Social Message 5m 2021

In a small town square, a young girl counts her savings. Happy with her sum, she skips to the country store where candy is arrayed in enticing glass jars. After careful consideration, she selects a giant, coloured lollipop, then joins the queue behind an old man buying bread and milk. Her glee, however, is stemmed when she witnesses the old man unable to afford his purchases. Too proud to accept the charitable shopkeeper’s offer to pay later, he finds enough coins to pay for just the bread. Leaving the milk on the counter, he shuffles to the door. As the young girl watches him leave, she contemplates her next move.
