Synopsis: A man sentenced to hanging for the murder of a girl in a drunk carriage accident awaits his execution date. A peddler of random goods convinces the man’s father that he can sell “magic dust” that turns “hate into love” but is really just a bag of ordinary dirt. At the hanging, the father starts to throw the dirt over the heads of the audience and shouts, “the magic is for love!” Behind him, the hanging takes place but when he turns around, he sees that the rope broke.
The Sheriff appeals then to the parents of the dead little girl to reconsider the hanging. The parents agree and suggest the man has suffered enough; one victim is enough.
