Zieleman

Blanco tries to reconcile his family through magic but the most successful trick he will learn is to let go.

Blanco is the youngest in his family and often gets forgotten. His family is constantly arguing, so he invents magic tricks to make sure his family will be ok. One night his brother and father have a huge argument and his brother leaves home. When Blanco invents a trick to get his brother back, he believes that the handy man Ben is the help he was asking for, and tries to convince Ben to help get his family back together.
