A young boy ventures into town after reading and dreaming about pirates and treasure. In the middle of a busy thoroughfare he cautiously checks his wallet but fails to put it into his pocket properly and it falls to the ground. In the panic to pick up the coins he spies a pirate like figure who gives him a black spot on a piece of paper. The boy starts to panic and is thrown into an epileptic fit. In an unconscious state the boy is visited by the pirate figure who in a cryptic fashion gives the boy some advice.
Awakening from his dream, he is surrounded by onlookers who harass the boy into a state of guilt for the inconvenience that he has caused them.
Later, he is back in his mother’s loving arms, contemplating that the world around him has profoundly changed that day.
