A young couple, owners of a small convenience store in East Los Angeles, notice that grocery items are disappearing from their inventory. Little do they know that the culprit is their own nine-year-old daughter. She is giving fruits and her lunch money to a homeless person every morning when she walks to school. Finding this out, the father explodes in a rage against the bum, only to be shocked and embarrassed when the assumed man is really a woman. To make amends, the family invites her to a Thanksgiving dinner that they will never forget. Referencing the Columbine shootings as a part of the woman’s past, “Roberta,” is a heartwarming story about friendship, forgiveness and the love of family that everyone will enjoy. Writers: Eric Nemoto, Jon Brekke, Ed Rothkowitz. Pages: 65.
