Stone Soup is the story of a tramp who convinces a family of bickering sisters to help make a pot of soup that sweetens their natures and changes their lives. The tramp puts his "soup stone" in a pot of water and then convinces the arguing sisters to add potatoes, tomatoes, onions and more. They are thrilled with the result, more thrilled when the tramp gives them his "soup stone" and so busy planning their next soup that they forget to argue.
