To help you, ask yourselves a few questions: Who's the kid in the foreground, and is the kid a boy or a girl? Who's the man further away? Is he walking away from or walking to the kid? Do they know each other? If yes, what's their relationship? If not, what does this encounter mean? And where the heck are they? Is that a school? A hospital? An army barracks? A mental institution? Is the kid scared? Or is it the man who's afraid?
