A radiant little prince is the center of the celebrations. The crowd suddenly gives way to an ominous figure. Pulling out a box and a knife, the circumciser grins at the boy. His nasty face grows bigger and bigger and turns into a huge monster. Fearful, the little golden boy flees. He chases him through a forest with ghostly figures. Suddenly a benevolent apparition tries to protect the victim.
