Synopsis

A school boy cannot think what to write in an essay assignment about spring. His father cannot come up with any new ideas either. Then his mother comes in with new boots for the boy. They only cost 59 crowns. In his exercise book the boy writes that Baťa is now selling a new range of shoes, and ladies shoes cost between 29 and 79 crowns. Advertisement for Baťa shoes.
