Tairo, a superstitious circus lion tamer, is going through a period of bad luck. He attributes it to the loss of the talisman he got years ago from a man called Mr. Universo. Tairo therefore travels across Italy to find Mr. Universo and with him, his lost luck. Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel's bittersweet docu-fiction was a winner in Locarno and at Viennale.
