Can & Slippers (Lata at Tsinelas)

A young boy from the Manila slums plays football with a can of Coke as his soccerball and a pair of slippers as his soccer shoes. When he finishes by shooting a goal at a rubbish dump, the camera pans out to show us he has only one leg and is moving around on crutches.
