An aspiring artist discovers the beauty of everyday life. Since Roberto hopes to be a renowned artist one day, he only paints bright and vibrant scenes. He refuses to paint images of the poor children playing or old Stefano and his donkey. One day, a cobbler lends Roberto a pair of sandals and whispers that they may allow him to see the world in a new light. As he wears the sandals, Roberto soon begins to value his surroundings and the virtues of other people.
