When disease kills a shepherd's sheep, his neighbour and friend, a farmer gives him some land. One day the shepherd finds a pot of gold. When the farmer refuses to take it they go to the wise man. Here, a student suggests making a garden for the poor. The young man goes to the city to buy plants but spends the money to release caged birds and nurse them to health. Although he has no money, the birds thank him by helping to build a magic garden for the poor.
