The story takes place in Paris, "a little before noon in the Spring of next year". Act 1 is set in a sidewalk café where the waitress, assorted customers, a ragman, a street musician, a juggler, a deaf child and peddlers mingle with a Corporation President, a Baron, a prospector and a broker. The business people are intent on bombing the office of the City Planner and drilling for oil throughout Paris.  Act 2 takes place in the ancient cellar of Countess Aurelia-the Madwoman. She gathers her friends together for tea and a mock trial to save Paris from destruction. Her first step is to ask the sewer man for the secret of the moving stone.
