This is the story of a young beggar boy who became a famous juggler and everywhere he went he brought people joy and laughter and smiles. Up and down Italy he went bringing his flying sticks, plates, torches, balls, and happiness. The years pass, though. Young Giovanni becomes old Giovanni and people become less and less interested until finally they drive him out of their towns. Then the weak old juggler crawls wearily into a church where he brings a smile to one last person. This enchanting tale shows that everything sings the glory of God, even juggling.
