A businessman in a Parisian cafe shoos away a homeless man begging for money, before realising he has forgotten his wallet so he cannot pay for his espressos. Unsure what to do, he delays the bill by ordering more and more cups of coffee. He finds himself contemplating stealing money from the old nun sitting next to him. However, things are not as they seem: the nun turns out to be a bank robber and the beggar turns out to be a generous benefactor who pays his bill. This Oscar-nominated short film has a playful, topsy-turvy feel. The dilemma of the film presents an opportunity to consider the role of money in everyday life: wealth, poverty, and presumption.
