Welcome to a day in the life of Chana, a timid 11-year-old boy who earns a living cleaning tables at a highway eatery. Overworked, underpaid and constantly bullied, he goes about his business with a stoic resignation. Having toiled all morning on this particular day, Chana is famished and all he desires is a meal to sate his hunger. However, to his dismay, his cruel boss gives him an errand to complete first. So he sets out on the long road to the market, with an empty stomach and a task ahead of him, along the way encountering adventure, enduring misfortune and being hounded at every turn by a constant temptation to satiate his hunger with the money meant for his errand. Will he hold out, or will he give in to the burning hunger?
