In this scene, dave, the kid, is begging his mom to give him food since he has not eaten in days, but she refuses because she hates her son. She does not feed him and she favors her other kids . Dave gets abused by his mom purely because of his existence
A Child Called "It"- Kareem Muhanna
NO, you have not earned it!
Mom Please let me eat, i did all the chores.
In this scene, you can see that dave steals other students food because he cant get his own. His mom does not give him food to eat and so he is forced to do this. It is really sad that dave has to go down this way but in the end it is his mothers fault for this
Someone stole my food!
Dave arrives late to school due to his mom making him do chores in he morning and so he goes to the attendance office and is told to see the nurse next. she looks at him and examines his body and see many bruses and stabs. She asks him about it and he quickly says "i ran into a wall" but then realizes he used the same excuse last time to her.
Why do you have so many bruises, Dave? you dont need to be afraid
Ummm, i ran into a wall...
Once the nurse calls a police officer to talk to dave, dave asks the officer not to hurt his mom and tells him its her that is abusing, starving, and hitting him. After that the officer calms him down and tells him everything will be okay. he also gives him a cookie for being a good boy and finishes it in world record time.
Its ok dave, you can talk to me. Just tell me who is doing this to you and you will be okay, trust me
its my mom...
The police officer then tells the kid that he will call his mom, dave then cries thinking his mom will beat him up for telling on her. But the officer assures him she wont. and so the officer tells his mom that dave wont be coming home any time soon. Dave is so relieved after that while he enjoys his cookies
I need your moms phone number
Please dont call her i beg you she will beat me up and starve me
After dave tells on his mom to the police at school, he gets sent to a vehicle with the officer and asks where they are going, the officer informs him he is staying at a juvenile place for now where they will take care of him until everything cools down. Dave looks out the mirror and says "Im free?"
Where are you taking me?
