Three strangers, hungry and tired, pass through a war-torn village. Suspicious, the people hide their food and close their windows. The clever strangers suggest making a soup from stones. Intrigued by the idea, everyone brings what they have, until they have a feast, showing the strength people have when they work together. Ages 5+.
