Obdulio, an 11-year-old Afro-Uruguayan boy who lives in Montevideo, 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.Through poetry and the lyrics of the “Murgas” (Carnival Pierrots) during the mythical nights of the irreverent Uruguayan carnival, the magician introduces Obdulio to a world of literacy and a different perspective about the meaning of life.
