One day while playing hide-and-seek with his friends, Toichi finds an old oil lamp in the attic. Seeing how entranced his grandson is with the object, the boy's grandfather decides to regale him with a story from fifty years ago. Minosuke is a young orphan who picks up any odd jobs he can in order to scrape a living. After taking on another errand, Minosuke becomes enamored with the various lamps decorating the night-time streets in town. Determined to illuminate his village with this new technology, the strong-willed boy begins selling the items to his fellow villagers and soon becomes a successful merchant. However, the advent of electricity soon spells doom for the humble lamp seller's trade...
