In the mountain village in the far East, there is always one wise woman who is respected by all the people around. From the moment she is chosen until her death she plays a very important part in the lives of the villagers. When she feels that her death is coming, she calls her four assistants to choose the one who will take her place. The test has been a secret for centuries now. The four women are asked to sit around a table, close their eyes and cover them with their hands. Then, the wise woman tells them that she is going to put a mark on each of their foreheads. The mark may be either white or black. When they open their eyes, any woman who sees more black than white marks must stand up. The first one who can say what mark is on her forehead takes the place of the wise woman of the village.
