Every child has the ability to create something beautiful. This story is about a nine year old street kid that makes things from metal scrap and junk. After his most precious marble creation is shattered by a bunch of street kids, he is left heartbroken with nothing but the remains of his work. Instead of giving up he takes on a little adventurous journey to remake his creation. When he puts together what he has, he realizes that to complete his work he needs the last piece of the creation, just one more marble. His determination and will to finish what he had started is so strong, that he leaves no stone unturned to find the last marble. Where this search takes him and what it reveals to us is a heartwarming experience.
