That night when Nestor is asleep, soldiers come from TheRomanEmpire saying they need strong donkeys. They pick a bunch of donkeys, including Nestor, but not his mother. Nestor tries to get away and one of the soldiers grabs the socks on Nestor's ears. They come off. The soldiers thought the owner of the stable was trying to trick them. The owner, Olaf, says he will give them Nestor for free, but the soldiers are angry so they force him to give him all the donkeys for free and do not take Nestor. The soldiers leave. Olaf is angry at Nestor because he did not get any money and at the same time lost all of his donkeys, and he throws Nestor out the door, saying that he doesn't care if Nestor freezes to death and tells him to never come back. Nestor's mother escapes the stable and finds Nestor. There is a blizzard going on outside by then, so Nestor's mother finds shelter and uses her body to cover Nestor up. He wakes up in the morning to find his mother frozen to death. Nestor cries over the loss of his mother and walks away.

Compare with {{Disney}}'s [[AnimatedFilms theatrical release]] ''Disney/TheSmallOne'' for a somewhat similar premise.

* BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: Kind of? The crooked donkey salesman looks at Mary, and her aura of holiness compels him to give Nestor to her for free. Once they leave, he wonders why on earth he did that.



* EtherealChoir

to:

* EtherealChoirEtherealChoir: Actually a plot point; Nestor's large ears let him hear the singing angels despite the sandstorm making it impossible to see, thus guiding him to Bethlehem.



* MissingMom
* OurAngelsAreDifferent

* MissingMom
MissingMom: She pulls a HeroicSacrifice.
* OurAngelsAreDifferentOurAngelsAreDifferent: Apparently "angels" visit humans, while "cherubs" visit animals.
