An old fairy tale tells of a pot that can cook so much sweet porridge that everyone gets full. The magic pot has been passed on. We encounter it three times: Jackie has to eat spinach at home and wishes for sweet porridge. Then she meets the spinach witch with the magic pot and they both swap.
Elisabeth has run away from home. Hungry, she sleeps on a park bench. She meets a tramp who lends her the magic pot.
Marlies is very fat and all the children tease her about it. But she loves to eat! Suddenly Marlies is standing at the porridge counter in a huge supermarket. The shop assistant flies up the shelf with propellers on his back and fetches the magic pot.
