A beggar woman of the name of "Ann" comes to the door. She holds a can in her hand and asks for money. She is a very old woman. She always says a prayer for the one who gives her money. She wears an old yellow coat and a black cap. She has no home of her own but she stays in the houses round the neighbourhood.
