As an eight year old girl counts her pennies she realises she has enough to make a trip to the shop to buy candy. After careful consideration, she chooses a giant lollipop then joins the queue behind a old man buying milk and bread. Impatient to purchase her lollipop, she only notices the old man when his bank card is declined. After he refuses charity from the shop keeper, he rummages around to find enough coins to pay for the bread, then leaves the milk on the counter and leaves the shop. The young girl eager to buy her lollipop watches the old man as he walks away and ponders her next move.
