Young Tairo, is a lion tamer living happily among the circus caravans. When his iron horseshoe lucky charm goes missing, he is unable to do his pre-show ritual and consequently can no longer perform. Recalling that the talisman was given to him in childhood by Arthur "Mister Universo" Robin, Tairo embarks on a quest to find the famous circus strongman and retrieve a copy of the beatified horseshoe. Working at the threshold of fiction and documentary, this picaresque odyssey inhabits the magical cinematic world where imagination meets reality.
