The philosopher Democritus has a toothache, so a dentist from ancient Abdera sets off for his house.  En route, he gets into a fight with a donkey driver.  This conflict eventually causes all of Abdera to go crazy.  Just when the city is seconds away from having a civil war, Democritus' apprentice shows up to ease the city's tensions with a gift.
