Buttons in the Ground

With her older sister, Jacki, having run away, and with her mother, Abigail, struggling to make ends meet, Lucy tries to alleviate some of the pressure by growing buttons so her mother won't have to buy them again when she tears her dress, which she does often. Abigail, trying to temper Lucy's hope with reality so that she won't be hurt, tries to convince her that her sister won't be coming back and that it is impossible to grow buttons. Through steadfast hope and innocence, her mother can't convince Lucy who continues on her journey to make these buttons grow.
