A short film inspired by incidents from the childhood of Charlie Chaplin, combined with a native american creation myth - the Cheyenns and Algonquin stories of the first sparring brothers, Malsum and Glooksap.
Sometime in the late 19th Century, young Charlie greets his brother Sydney with the news that their mother has been taken away to the infirmary. On visiting her they are given gifts, which she says has magical properties that will protect them. Sydney is given a ruby brooch, Charlie a silver shilling.
