Enjoy your meal – A desperately hungry boy steals a banana but is immediately caught; he begins running fast so as to save himself from the rage of his pursuers. Unfortunately they are numerous and the boy can’t make it; he implores them to take the banana back but all they want is revenge. So they beat him to death with a steak and then laugh at him. Later on, a young boy passes by the dead body and finds the banana stained with the blood of an innocent. He cannot help but pick the banana off the ground and eat it. Hunger makes anything possible.
