At the miniature checkout counter at a Children’s Museum, a grandma and mom take on the role of customers in a boy’s imaginary game.


The adults continue their discussion of family dynamics as they play. They verge on confrontation when the mom tries to explain some concerns. Grandma feels frustrated with her daughter’s cryptic wording and asks for a direct answer. She seems to get it after her daughter explains, “Sometimes you just make me feel like I’m a bad daughter when I just need some ‘me’ time.”


The intensity is broken up by the little boy’s demands: “You’ll buy this” and “You put this on.” They both seamlessly contribute to his imaginary play as they deconstruct heavy issues in their adult reality.
