Animation. Teenagers Lucinda and Benji are would-be rock stars. When the villain, Maestro - an outlandish cross between Fred Astaire and Nosferatu's vampire - steals Benji's shadow, the boy can no longer play a note. Worse, he begins, physically, to fade away. The heroic parrot, Globi - loved by European kids for generations - tracks Maestro to a subterranean Gothic opera house. There he discovers Maestro's megalomanical agenda: to steal the shadows of all the world's musicians and so force the world to dance only to his tune. Globi and his friends must reunite the shadows with their musicians in order to save the world's music and the world itself!

The first European animationfilm in the style of Japanese Mangas.
