Introductory intertitle reads: "Conjuring tricks appeal to all - especially when we're shown 'how'. Master Richard Barrs, who won Maskelyne's Boy Conjuring Championship, explains an easy one for you to try - when you get home."
A young boy - probably around 12 or 13 years old demonstrates a magic trick. He wears a white suit. He is assisted by an older man. The boy describes the trick he is performing, it is rather stilted and overacted. The trick demonstrated is an escaping trick - his hands are tied and he manages to get free.
