Three children are racing against each
other on a go-kart track. At a certain
point one of them has to stop because
a young fawn has suddenly appeared on
the track. Amazed, two of them take off
their helmets and scramble out of their
karts. The girl is moved by the sight of
the fawn, which awkwardly walks away,
while her other companion goes over to
her and emotionally takes her hand.
