Synopsis:
As an explorer is searching caves in Africa, a tremor exposes wall paintings and a gourd filled with herbs. The paintings explain that when a picture of a desired result is drawn, and a damp hand is put in the herbs and then placed on the picture, the green hand print will make it come to pass. Unfortunately there's always someone out there ready to make bad use of these types of powers.
