about this item

Two hungry travelers arrive at a village expecting to find a household that will share a bit of food, as has been the custom along their journey. To their surprise, villager after villager refuses to share, each one closing the door with a bang. As they sit to rest beside a well, one of the travelers observes that if the townspeople have no food to share, they must be in greater need than we are.
Two hungry travelers find a village full of unsharing households until they make a magical soup which starts with a stone, to which each villager contributes a vegetable or spice until a huge pot is prepared for all to share.
