Nuestra historia empieza en el Sur de los Estados Unidos, en la boyante década de los años 50. En ese entorno, Henry Walker, quien en una ocasión fue el mago más impresionante del mundo, se pudre poco a poco en un espectáculo de variedades de tercera, el Circo Chino de Jeremiah Mosgrove. Cuando Henry, de niño, se encontró con Mr Sebastián, éste le concedió un deseo que marcaría y condenaría su vida: la capacidad de hacer magia. Su historia esconde todo lo que nos parece irreal: un mago negro que no lo es, una niña inocente que desaparece sin dejar huella ni recuerdo, una mujer que juega con la frontera de la muerte, para ir a ella y volver a su antojo...
