A tiny, living baby in a rubbish bin: that's the unexpected discovery made by a homeless man ransacking bins for something edible.
After the infant fails to survive the cold night they share without shelter, he frantically searches for a small box in which to inter it. He finds two lamb shanks as a final gift and in a solemn ceremony, he farewells the child.
