Excellent, Preschool, Primary, Poverty, Bus Stops, Nature, Beauty
CJ asks his grandmother a series of ‘why’ questions about why their life is the way it is. Nana answers CJ by pointing out all the beautiful, wonderful things CJ has that he takes for granted, but doesn't phrase them as usual answers. Instead, Nana answers CJ’s questions with her own questions so that CJ will take possession of what he is feeling inside. Ultimately, CJ and Nana’s final destination is the soup kitchen where they volunteer every week. They then go inside, where CJ is finally happy to be where he is in life.
