Episode 2 of 2

Duration: 15 minutes

Poignant drama exploring emotional issues which children can relate to, learn from and enjoy. In the UK, Nicky is out Christmas shopping with her mum. But she is more interested in watching a phone video of when she was on the big wheel with both mum and dad - when her parents were still together. When she hears that she will not see her dad, she runs out of the market with her friend Omar. Before long she is lost and alone in the city. As night falls, she uses the big wheel as a guide, and starts to realise she needs her mum as much as she needs her dad.
