On the run from the aunt and uncle who want to separate them, Prosper and Bo escape to Venice. Here they are taken in by a gang of homeless children, who are led by Scipio, the mysterious ‘Thief Lord’. Pursued by a private detective, the children resort to thievery and trickery to survive. Then the thief lord (who is he really?) accepts a dangerous mission. This is an exciting and atmospheric adventure with a touch of magic.
