A canny and experienced Jester king is entrusted with transforming a young aristocrat into a jester. Under his tutelage - and with the help of his companions - the novice is subjected to lessons through which he gradually discovers his jesters self. But before a new jester can be born, he must undergo a ritual.
“KNOWING NEITHER MOTHER NOR FATHER, HE WAS RAISED IN AN INSTITUTION FOR ABANDONED ARISTOCRATIC CHILDREN, BROUGHT UP AS A KNIGHT AND TRANSFORMED INTO A JESTER - ALL AS PUNISHMENT AND IN SEVEN SCENES. HELD CAPTIVE BY BUFFOONISH GERIATRICS, HE WAS TOO BEAUTIFUL TO BE A JESTER IN THE DOTARD-DUMPS OF HISTORY.” BOLEK POLÍVKA
