This is a tale about the need for environmental conservation, couched in the touching story of a homeless boy in search of a meal. The elderly village schoolteacher promises the boy some money if he will help in a tree-planting exercise. Yet when he finally goes to buy a loaf of bread, he finds the money is missing.
