The action takes place in one of the most representative quarters in Buenos Aires, La Boca, which received the first Italian immigrants. The usual characters of this area are altered by the presence of a being that comes to demand bread and food by means of boldness, jokes and cunning. The local baker Don Vermicheli will defend the rights of his neighbours and will send away this being from the afterlife with its tail between its legs.
It is a classic of hand puppetry where fantasy becomes the human and the human becomes fantasy.
