A mysterious masked figure with an enormous beak flies over the roofs of the old city of Venice at night. He is the Thief Lord aka 15 year-old teenager Scipio (Rollo Weeks). An ancient merry-go-round with magical powers is hidden on an island in the lagoon of Venice. It can advance or reverse the age of its rider if the part missing from the lion, lost long ago, is found and re-attached. When the Thief Lord and his gang of ragamuffin child runaways find a wing, they are drawn into a fantastic and spellbinding adventure that will change their lives forever.
