A young boy joins a group of wandering entertainers with his juggling. Time goes on and the boy grows older. As the juggler gets older, his juggling ability is lessened and he decides to ìgo homeî by journeying to the monastery where he can live out his days. Once there, he arrives in time for the celebration of the birthday of the Christ child. As a gift, the juggler performs for the child, who is seen in a picture on the lap of his mother. The child appears sad to the juggler, and the juggler is determined to make him happy. When the juggler finishes his performance, his heart stops beating. The brothers who come and find him discover that the Christ child is now pictured with a smiling face, holding one of the jugglerís golden balls. (PS-P)
