There's not a lot one can do wen they're born into certain life situations. People around you may look your way, or they may not. Working all day and night, being kind, or smart with your money won't change were we are for many. These are just the hard truths of our capitalist and selfish society.

This was great. Horrible subject, because of how real and sad it feels.

Great job, dude. I think that, opposite of what you might have read on some reviews, the message is quite clear as it is, as well as the motivations of the characters.

A good story with a lot of truth to it.

There is a lot of people out there just like that woman, i know because I have to deal with people like that at my job.

Designs are good.
The 2D animation is ok, it needs more frames.

Bastante interesante contar una historia sin decir palabras a excepci├│n de los letreros en ingles pero un trabajo bastante bien hecho saludos desde Mexico

What a mean arrogant woman.

I guess I didn't really understand some of the character motivations. For example, why did the lady reward the younger black kid but not the older one? Or why does the older kid, who is obviously the caretaker of the two, think ice cream is a suitable meal? I mean, I understand kids will be kids, but anyone who has spent enough time poor will know how to get by what little money they have, and realize that junk food is not good in this regard. I don't know if I am overthinking it, but that was the primary issue I had with the animation. Otherwise, excellent work on the art, animation and choice of music. In regards to sound, I probably would have chosen a different sound for the stomach grumbling, it felt comically out of place.
