The Boy with no Shadow is a comic tale of a peace-loving kingdom on the planet Venus, ruled by an absent-minded king and a very patient and understanding queen. Unfortunately, the kingdom has a military chief, who is not all that peace-loving. How can one retire from a military career without at least one little war? Greatly preoccupied with his need for manliness he seeks magic potions from various sources in the universe and secretly plans a war against a neighbouring planet. A little boy passing by drinks a bottle of one of the potions ordered by the Commander out of curiosity …. and turns invisible. That is when the tamasha begins. If Venus is the planet of love and Mars stands for war and Jupiter is for fun and frolic, imagine the mayhem when characters from the planets have their paths crossed! And an invisible little boy is crisscrossing them all the time. It is another world!
