Here it is: the last Just One Story… episode to get upscaled to 720p HD.

For those new to this one: Diane Wolkstein is seen here with a poignant story from her collection The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales (1978). The most amazing thing about this story is the fourth — and intentionally forgotten — daughter’s capacity to forgive her mother for the injustice done to her as a child.

But why say more? Just enjoy.
