The Party Shoes

Synopsis

A little girl observes how her mother reads a letter and cries. She's determined not to make this happen again.

Eagerly she waits for the mailman to pass by. Then she collects all the letters of the neighbourhood she can get hold of and stashes them away in an electrical distribution box.

Her mum is caught in her own sadness about her recent breakup and ignores and violates the little girl's feelings. It's not until she finds the many letters the girl collected that she realises what she needs to do.

Finally the girl and her are sitting on the bed, sorting letters.
