Additional Info

The cobbler has broken his arm and can’t work. The landlord threatens eviction if the rent isn’t paid immediately. The poor but generous couple give away their last pair of shoes to a beggar woman instead of selling them; weary, worried, and penniless, they go to bed. Suddenly, a troupe of elves appear, singing and dancing, and take over the cobbler’s work.
