This story tells of the friendship between a young villager who arrives in medieval Prague, Jemmy, and his Goat. The twist comes when Jemmy falls in love with Katy – a street-wise girl from Prague. Goat is jealous, and starts to hate Katy. Jemmy works on the construction of the Charles Bridge, and later he helps Master Hanus, who is creating an astronomical clock for the City of Prague. The work with Master Hanus allows Jemmy to meet and date Katy, who is a maid in Master Hanus’s house. Having finished the astronomical clock, Master Hanus is blinded by greedy aldermen who want to prevent him from creating another monumental clock elsewhere. Blind Master Hanus, with help from Katy, disables the clock but dies soon afterwards. If Jemmy wants to save Katy from execution, he must repair and correctly set the astronomical clock straight away. And ever jealous Goat is hardly helping… Love and friendship between a man and an animal blend together with the story of a poor student, Matthias, from the mysterious Faust’s House.
