Little orphan May lives with her uncle Sonny, who is a great tattoo artist. May loves to be with him, especially when he is working. But, as Sonny has always said: Children and tattoos are a lousy cocktail. One day May and Sonny must leave town in a hurry. This sets off an adventurous roadtrip through a magical forest with flying fairies, a funny circus family and their big cuddly tiger.
