Overview

In this fractured folk tale based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer, Mazel and Shlimazel, the spirits of Good Luck and Bad Luck, make a bet to determine who is the more powerful.

Along the way, matters are complicated by a crafty prime minister, a superstitious nurse, and a lion on the loose!
