A beturbanned young man and his dancing girl come out with a rug, and perform a magic act, causing a rose tree to sprout. The pick the huge blooms, which turn into another beautiful young woman. However, this turns into too much of a good thing, and the young man takes liberties with the second lady, leaving him with none.
Other film makers had already taken note of Melies' trick films and tried to compete, particularly Walter Booth releasing through Robert Paul, but I suspect Segundo de Chomon had made Melies sit up, take notice and decide that his "magician" films needed a bit of a story.
