A soldier is marching home from war when he meets a witch who says, "What a fine sword you have, and what a big knapsack! Now I'll show you how to fill your knapsack with as much money as you want." Fortune is fleeting for the soldier until he learns the secret of the witch's tinderbox and her three peculiar dogs, each with eyes bigger than the last. With each strike of the flint, a dog appears to grant him his wish, and the soldier doesn't hesitate to take advantage of this gift at a high cost to the kingdom.
