For many centuries, alchemists have devoted their time, energy, and knowledge in search of the “Philosopher’s Stone” otherwise known as “The Sword in the Stone” or “The White Stone by the River”, a mythical substance that can turn ordinary metal into pure gold. It is also believed that the stone can provide ultimate enlightenment and immortality.

These alchemists are often illustrated as men who seriously and obsessively work in front of several tubes and flasks, mixing elements and going through great lengths just to create the elusive material. Much like any ordinary men in this modern world, the alchemist in this heartwarming, short story directed by Carlos Stevens, got caught up in his work that he started to neglect his wife and son. His desire for gold and prestige eventually changed him. And although he was finally able to invent the machine that can successfully transform a metal into the purest form of gold, he had to pay a huge price.
