Martin visits his usual Sunday hideaway where he discovers a giant staircase reaching into the sky. He climbs. Soon he comes upon a soldier and a little girl engrossed in a game of marbles. Due to its indecipherable rules, Martin is evicted from the game and forced to continue his climb; the soldier elects to join him. They encounter a beautiful princess (Aren't they all?). The men vie for the favour of their lovely companion, but thanks to a broken decanter, Martin loses his battle. He continues his adventure alone. At the top of the staircase, he collides with an old man who advises him against entering the portal to an ancient monument. Martin defies the warning and enters the dark portal, determined to discover the hidden secret of the staircase.
