This is a story about the strong bonding between a grandma and a granddaughter. Their connection is built and manifested during the grandma's shoes. This is a very common technique in storytelling to create empathy with the audience through the usage of a device. Emotions are first attached to the device, in this case, a pair of grandma's shoes during the initial setup stage of the story. In the resolution stage, the device is manifested to recollect audience's memories and escalate the emotion to the climax. The key in using this technique depends largely on how good the story context is developed revolving at this device unintentionally. It is all because of this implicitly setup that the recall of the device in the later stage could have the strong emotional impact.
