After a while, he returns and when he sees that his wife has married another man, complains and accuses her without even thinking about her children. The kids spend their life by beggary and selling garbage and at night they come back to their mother in prison. They save a stray baby dog , and decide to keep it. When the police finds out about the situation, they are banned from coming to prison and when they understand that prison is for keeping the criminals, they try to commit a crime; so they go for small robberies, but they are always forgiven by the people . Upon watching the "Bicycle Thieves" movie in cinema, they decide to rob a bicycle in public to be arrested. The girl is afraid to be beaten during the robbery, so his brother takes her and the dog in a safe place and promises her to introduce her as his colleague when he is arrested and beaten by people.

The baby dog watches the girl going and some time later the voice of a boy is heard yelling "my bicycle is stolen". There are also police whistles and noise of the crowd. The baby dog is curious and begins to bark. The girl's voice who is arrested is heard harder and harder. The baby dog is alone and it barks to call the girl and her brother.
