SYNOPSIS

When wandering through a busy market town, a man suddenly stops, frozen to the spot.

What on earth has happened? Is he ill? Is he drunk? Is He Jesus? One little girl takes charge of the situation.

This 90-second comedy animation is a riddle, wrapped in a rhyming scheme, inside a market.
