It is as gut-wrenching as it is heart-breaking. The purpose is to draw attention to the growing problem of poverty-plagued, undernourished children in the U.S. A mother is shown dawdling at a fast-food restaurant, surreptitiously grabbing dozens of packets of ketchup. Flash forward to the woman's rundown apartment, where she tears open the packets, mixes adds water and puts the pan on top of the stove to make soup.
