Every night a girl, a boy and an old technician meet in a small cinema. Although cinema no longer seems to work, it is full of miracles. The three friends invent, paint, dress and become characters in every story they tell, in a magical evening where anything is possible. There are witches and fairies, powerful kings and poor boys, werewolves and beautiful, cruel ladies, cathedrals, cities of golden and dark forests, harmonies of great choirs and spells of a single drum, destructive wickedness and triumphant innocence.
Every evening a girl, a boy, and an old technician get together in a small movie theater. Although the theater no longer seems to be operating, it is full of wonders. The three friends invent, draw, dress up, and become characters in any story they feel like telling during one magical night when everything is possible. There are witches and fairies, powerful kings and stable boys, werewolves and beautiful, cruel ladies, cathedrals and sequins, cities of gold and dark forests, harmonies of big choirs and the spells of a single drum, devastating malice and triumphant innocence.
