El Mazzarol is a little man, with red skin and hair, dressed in black, who can appear and disappear whenever he likes to put under his spell shepherds and shepherdesses. Only he knows the secret of how to make milk trurn into butter, cheese, ricotta and candle wax. Margherita, having lost her memory, when Mazzarol blew on her, serves and helpes him until she becomes a very good diarymaid. Having regained her memory she escapes before learning how to extract wax from whey, a secret wich is still kept by Mazzarol. This is the first of ten films on the alpine legends of Trentino, gathered by the writer Giovanna Borzaga.
