A homeless boy walks through the market. He steals two sausages, two plates, and one candle. In the evening, he prepares dinner: He spreads a newspaper over a box and sets the plates and candle on the makeshift table. He lights the candle and combs his hair. He takes a puppy out of a box and together they enjoy their delicious meal. Angry market vendors arrive, but soon retreat once they see the boy and the puppy.
