One and a half months after the devastating earthquake reduced an entire village to rubble, and a ten-year-old girl longs for normality. News reaches her that school will reopen in a day and she is understandably overjoyed, but there is a hitch: she must first locate her shoes – mandatory under new school rules – in the debris that was once her home.
