In a small northern village, two neighbours are arguing heatedly, accusing each other of the worst things, when a street vendor arrives and tries to sell them a few items. The two women also unload their anger on him and begin to mock him for his condition. They laugh even more when they see a stone among his items, ridiculing him for his absurd selling techniques. But the man declares that he does not want to sell the stone, since it is what gives him food. In fact, all he has to do is boil it in a pot of water to get the best soup in the world. Amused by the absurdity of the assertion, the two women challenge the seller to cook him soup from that stone on the spot. And so the man patiently sets to cooking, slowly transforming the water into a rich soup before their incredulous eyes. This event will lead the two women to question their entire lives.
