A woman puts a bust on a table. It comes to life, transforms into a butterfly, and produces two babies.

What we have here is your basic trick film; there’s no real plot, but just a series of visual tricks. I have no idea what the title means, but if someone had told me that this was where babies came from, I would have suspected that there was some psychosis involved. This brings our Chomonothon to an end, though I have no doubt that I’ll be covering more of his films at some later time.
