Ponette is a sad little girl. She has survived a car crash that killed her mother and left her with a broken arm. Her father takes her to live with an aunt, who has two children roughly her age, explaining to his tearful, disbelieving daughter that her mother is not coming back. Not understanding the finality of death in an adult way, Ponette wonders why if Jesus gets to rise from the dead, why can't her mother?
