Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this family drama, a 10-year old boy is forced to live with his cruel, alcoholic uncle after his father is wrongly convicted of stealing. The little boy tries to sell his pet burro so he can afford to pay for his dad's defense, but the mean old uncle beats him to it and trades the jackass for food and booze. The boy remains undeterred and carries on with his quest.
