Based on the novel written by Henning Mankell, “Chronicler of the Winds” (Original title: Comédia infantil) tells the story of a ten-year old african boy called Nelio. The boy has been shot on the stage of a theatre, and he tells his life story and all his troubles, including living on the street, being persecuted for albinism, and being traumatized as a child soldier.

Alexander Frank adapted the novel for the stage and created new narrators: three traveling storytellers who found Nelio in their circus one night and now are on tour sharing his story.
