"The Elves and the Shoemaker" - Final Renders

In a small town, lives an old shoemaker and his wife. For years they have survived off of the success of the shop they started, but in recent years, times have gotten tough. The shoemaker has become old and can't work as fast as he used to. With no other options available, the two are about to go to bed and they hear a knock on their door. To their surprise, a group of very, very small gentlemen have arrived to help. They're the Elf Mafia and, with a fair price, could help turn the store around. The shoemaker and his wife happily agree, but once it is time for payment day, all they have to offer tiny, knitted sweaters. The elves smack away the sweaters saying that they are not up to the quality of their expensive, tailored suits. The Elf Mafia does not like to be swindled and will get their payment, one way or another...
