Introduction
Salomon, a gold seeker whose Jewish appearance is almost a caricature, wanders the sands surrounded by endless horizons. He cheerfully whistles along with the Klezmer song on his portable radio, while his detector sweeps the wet sand. Finally, he discovers the hatch of what seems to be a giant submarine and opens it.
