A disillusioned clown, a sick woman and a hysterical magician form a trio of dreamers in a world focused on images and the quest for happiness. In their world without landscape, amusement park and Westerns in comics greatly influence the brother Said and Saymo, clown and magician of the park. Asma, a girl from the neighborhood, enjoy the time remaining before his departure to color their fantasies of a life filled with success, love and gratitude. But life is not a fairy tale.
