Manu, a homeless man living on the streets on Christmas eve, finds some pieces of porcelain in a trash can. He carefully reassembles the fragments to find they form a statue of dog which he keeps as a confidant. The day before Christmas, an event occurs that will pierce Manu's (and his dog's) life deeply.
