Title slide reads "Contriving a Mand: One can make shoes valuable by making a rip to the museum contingent on having shoes". Video begins with a child sitting at a desk drawing. The camera focuses on his bare feet. A woman who is off-screen says "Ben, it's time to go to the museum". Ben looks at his feet and says "I need my shoes". The woman walks in holding a pair of shoes, gives them to Ben and says "Here you go".
