• Short Summary

    A sweet sketch about the eternal question of alchemy

  • Description

    Studio?

    Several shots of a magician attempting to solve the main question of alchemy - to find a process which converts every matter into gold.

    A magician making magic potion which makes an old woman young again - the question of eternal youth. He gives it to an old woman who dissolves into beautiful young girl.

    Both wear medieval costumes and it all looks like a children's play.
