A baby is abused by its mother while still in her tummy.
It grows into a troubled young man.
He meets the girl of his dreams and tries to kill her.
But fails because of her feminine powers.
The troubled young man is reunited with the ghost of his mother.
For her sins God strikes her down with a bolt of lightning.
The troubled young man and his mother live happily ever after in heaven.

This film is No. 4 in the Eastern Europe round of the Brown Europe Pageant.

In it Caucazoida, played by Jasmine of Mavericks, dresses to go to work and remembers the true story of Zulamma Agra. In 1865, Zulamma, a Circassian women, was bought at the slave market in Istanbul by an agent of the American showman P. T. Barnum. She was paraded around the United States as the purest example of a woman of the white race, but from the Orient.

$$$'s bought Barnum his own white slave and made him plenty more $$$'s.
