Continuing from clip 2: Mom arrives from work in the guesthouse downstairs. She immediately notices Banele chewing on a packet of earbuds and asks dad if Banele’s gums are itchy. She pick up Banele and plays for a few moments – talking to him. He looks towards the camera smiling and then towards dad. Mom notices this and tells dad “He’s looking at you”. Dad reaches out and encourages Banele towards him.

The phone rings with a request from downstairs and mom has to leave. Dad reconnects with Banele making noises and getting responses of pleasure and uncertainty from him.
