A boy discovers a bizarre-looking creature while out collecting bottle-tops at a beach. Having guessed that it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, a problem that is met with mute indifference from everyone else, who barely notice its presence. Each is unhelpful in their own way; strangers, friends, parents are all unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to day-to-day life. They are all too busy doing other stuff. For reasons he does not explain, the boy empathises with the creature, or at least seems determined to find a place for it.
