Marco is ten years old and loves Napoleon. One day, a friend of the family confesses that he "owns" the handshake of Napoleon, which came into his possession after a journey from hand to hand lasting over 150 years.
And so Napoleon’s precious handshake is passed on to Marco, who decides never to shake anyone’s hand again.
But one day, at a party, someone steals the handshake from him. Will Marco manage to get it back?
