The little tailor is eating some delicious plum butter while he sews, but the smell attracts a swarm of flies. The tailor swats at them, killing seven at once. He is so impressed by this act that he makes himself a sash with the motto "Seven With One Blow."
He travels to the king to offer his services. The court is not sure whether to laugh or be afraid, and the king sends the tailor on impossible assignments to get rid of him. The tailor is able to use his cleverness to complete these tasks and win the princess.
This animated puppet film is based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.
