Jasminum is a comedy with a little bit of bitterness. It is situated in a Gamedolite order in the little town of Jasminow.

The names of the three of them – Plum, Hagberry and Cherry, reflect the special feature of these monks: they smell like plum, hagberry and cherry. One day, a young woman with her little daughter arrive at the convent. The church authorities have hired her to preserve the paintings there. She keeps working during the day, but at night, she does strange things in the attic where she stays: she takes little bottles of fragrant oils, measuring glasses, pipettes, distilling flasks out of her trunk and starts alchemic experiments…
