Description:00 16 12 00 In a country and rustic house to the XIX-th, woody and stuffy atmosphere. A mother, Mary Costes rocks her child of a dozen years and begins to intone a rocking chair, a song. Very kitsch. Street with house in half-timberings. A man with ample coat and fur hat in fur, Otto Gebuhr, waits. A palefrenier brings him a horse, a frame. He seems worried and perceives a frog on pavements. Forerunner. He gets ready to leave.
