Venice in winter, the sea level rises: Two brothers on the run reach the dream city of their deceased mother. They are threatened with separation and adoption by unloved relatives, but the two find refuge with a group of young thieves. Their leader is the mysterious "Lord of Thieves", who keeps the gang afloat with his daring forays. But a peculiar detective is on the trail of the children. His investigations scratch the legend of the origin of the master thief and put the group in danger. At the same time, a mysterious assignment leads the children on a search for a lion's wing and to a forbidden lagoon island. The wing is part of a magical carousel that supposedly can transform young and old, a haven of ancient desires, where we dream of transformation, where big and small, even rich and poor are not fixed sizes. Everything flows, for a moment. And yet social reality and injustice come into play here, quite un-fairytale-like.
