Synopsis

Little Jarmila is getting ready for school. She is not too orderly and her mum has to remind her several times to tidy up her room. The two of them part on the street. As soon as the mother vanishes around the corner, the girl takes her schoolbag off her back. She tells all her girlfriends in class that she is allowed to carry her bag in her hand instead of her back. Before the class begins she runs off to a shoe shop window and admires a dreamed-of pair of children's shoes. It is almost eight o'clock and Jarmila, still in the school dressing room, gets an idea. She runs down to the boiler-room and chucks her worn-out sandals behind the pipes. After the class, she does a little play-acting in front of her teacher and other children about how she has lost her shoes. The mother, who has come to take Jarmila home, comforts her little daughter. Then they go to the shop together and the girl gets the shoes she so much wanted. The mother must do some more shopping and Jarmila goes home on her own. She stops at every shop window to admire her new shoes. At home, she realizes what she has done and finally bursts into tears.
