1486: Knittlingen ist ein ruhiger Ort im Kraichgau. Bis zu dem Tag, als die Gaukler in die Stadt kommen - und plötzlich Kinder verschwinden. Johann Georg, von seiner Mutter "Faustus", der Glückliche, genannt, kümmert das nicht. Ihn interessieren nur die bunten Kostüme, die Sackpfeifen und Kunststücke. Besonders der Spielmann und Magier Tonio del Moravia beeindrucken ihn: Von dem blassen Mann mit den stechend schwarzen Augen, der Johann eine große Zukunft als Gelehrter voraussagt, geht eine seltsame Faszination aus. Johann schließt sich ihm an, gemeinsam ziehen sie durch die deutschen Lande.
