Sometimes it takes a dire situation before you discover how much kindness there is around you.
Celebrate the power of a smile in this deceptively simple story set in a multi-ethnic market. A small boy is planning how to spend his first ever pocket money when disaster strikes and he's left with only one coin. His day seems to be ruined until he sees a Smile Shop.
In a surprise ending, the world is put to rights and suddenly the whole world is smiling again!
