It's evening. A thief breaks into a flat through an open window. A little boy wakes up in his bed. He asks the man, whom he calls "uncle", to fix his teddy-bear and then his wooden toy-car. The thief has no choice but to comply because the child could start crying and give him away. The skilful man even manages to open the tin piggy-bank whose key is missing. He reluctantly refuses the coins that boy is offering. The parents return home and the thief runs away. But first he has to promise the boy to come back and fix all the other toys.
