One winter's day an Aboriginal single mother and her two cold, stroppy children make their way to a movie theatre. They want a hot chocolate and a warm heater. At the pre-dominantly Anglo movie theatre the family receives looks of disdain and contempt. Whilst waiting in queue for their hot chocolate the children notice a disabled man who is not allowed inside, and instead of ignoring and deriding him they offer to help. The children share what they have; sacrificing their own wants to buy him a hot chocolate. Together the family and man share a moment of sweet, kind humanity in a sea of loathing.
