Into the shop of an Armenian barber enters a lad with hair so long that birds have made their nests in it. From this strange character - who is perhaps not much of a barber but unbeatable as a story teller - the young daydreamer learns the sad story of a man who worked in a circus. Every day that man put his head in the mouth of a tiger. Every day the same performance. Every day the final applause that increased his confidence in fate. Until one evening when the tiger closed his mouth and didn’t open it again. So is the world of adults.
