How do you tell a little boy that his grandfather has died?

You don’t, according to the boy’s mother.

Bembem loved his grandfather dearly, and learning of his death might break his little heart.

So his mother Grace brings home a stray goat and tells Bembem that his grandpa has turned into a goat.

Such is the innocence of a child’s mind that he wholeheartedly believes it.

Grace makes the whole family play along to this farce. In fact, she even makes visitors who have come to offer their condolences play along to it.

Then things start to get a little out of hand. Bembem’s father Bert starts to envy Bembem’s closeness to the goat.

And Bert’s brother Ronnie goes on a tirade about Bert was always the favoured son, and still is.

Grace is trying to keep the family sane, but sanity seems to be far far away from this family.
