This cartoon tells the story of an evil sorcerer, who wants to make an atomic bomb. He forces a little boy and a fox to help him in his dark laboratory. However, the clever pair is able to outwit the evil, demonic inventor and rather than creating a devastating weapon they start using nuclear energy to help people and to facilitate manufacturing. It is one of the first films to deal with this topic. The painter Kamil Lhoták was awarded a gold medal at the 1947 Venice Biennale for his work on this film.
