Walking in the busy streets with speeding vehicles, Romina sells variety of foods. Disregarding the heat of the sun, and the danger of getting hit by the vehicles, she crosses the street in order to sell. She approaches drivers, passersby, and anyone who's a potential buyer.

When she got home she cooked stir fried squid, especially with the tentacles, which she will bring to the hospital for her child. It's her son's favorite food who's been hospitalized for weeks due to an extreme health condition. She never sleeps at home anymore during the period.

Every morning, she leaves the hospital with, and go back to selling to save for her child's surgery which is very expensive. Nobody is able to help her, whether her family or the government. She's thankful though for having a sister willing to watch and take care of her son without asking anything back.

That day while she's walking to the area where she used to sell, she saw a bag at the bench unattended. She took and opened it, there she saw bundles of money. Didn't know what to do, she just walk with thoughts it can help for her child's surgery. But her principles made her decide to surrender it to the police station. It was then announced in the radio, which the owner heard.

As the owner went to the police station, he met Romina who decides to sell there. Asked why she decided to surrender the money, she responded that she really needed money for her child's surgery but she can't just take it because of her priciples and beliefs. Saddened over Romina's situation, the owner promised to pay the surgery and hospital bills, as well as an additional money as a reward for her honesty.
