The old porter of the Atlantis hotel is proud of his job and he does it well, perhaps even too well. One day he has to carry a huge suitcase because the bellboy is not around. For a moment he sits down and rests. But the young hotel manager sees him and writes him up. So, the porter loses his job and is degraded to work in the hotel’s toilets. He tries to hide his sadness and it seems only a miracle could help him…
