Obdulio is an 11-year-old Afro-Uruguayan boy who lives with his grandmother in Montevideo. He sells newspapers in the streets to help out with the household expenses and has no interest in attending school. One night he meets the "Maestro," a charismatic watchman who possesses magical gifts, at a newspaper building. Through poetry and the lyrics of the "Murgas" (Carnival Pierrots) during the mythical nights of the irreverent and provocative Uruguayan carnival, the magician introduces Obdulio to a world of literacy and a different perspective an the meaning of life.
