As they set out on the journey they discover many secrets, laws of nature and others. At one stage of the play, they come across a ship where they find an old man guarding the ship and a woman who claims to be the daughter of a woodcutter.

The guard tells them that he has the key to the gate of a city where grows the elusive Oleander Flower that has magical powers.

The two brothers stab the guard and take the key. They set out on a quest to find the flower and the city.
