Fairy tales tell of people who cry tears of crystal, or other precious gems. This story is one of those, but in this case the weeper lives alone and isolated, largely ignored by a public who assume her show is a sham.
Hot and tired, quarreling with his wife, a man goes into the shop, just for a break, but he learns something about sorrow and healing.
