Based on a play by Dario Fo, this parable about the evolution of Western civilisation is set in 1550. Our hero is Johan, a curious young man who spends his life travelling between Venice and Seville. After a gypsy woman Johan met in Venice is accused of witchcraft, he is forced to travell to the Americas where he meets the Indio population.
