A child lives in a metal shack at the bank of the river Tigris. Both of his parents died in an accident. To survive, the child works in a car workshop but when he arrives late for work and slips on the oily floor, his employer hits him on the head and fires him. For comfort, the boy turns to his new friend, a dismembered teddy bear he found in the river. Together they play soccer and spent all their money in an amusement park. “Tomorrow, we will need to find a new job”, the child says.
