Summary
Uma looks up at the night sky and wonders how many stars are in the sky. The impossibility of counting makes her feel very small in relation to how big, how infinite the universe is. The next day, wearing brand new red shoes, Uma asks her schoolmates, her grandmother, the cafeteria cook, and her music teacher what infinity means to them. She finds that each one has a different perspective on infinity, but not one has noticed her amazing new shoes. What Uma learns is that infinity may be a concept too large to truly understand, except when it comes to understanding the infinity of love that she shares with her beloved grandma who in the end compliments Uma on “the most beautiful shoes she has ever seen”.
