Yoseph and Myriam are tired and bewildered, looking for a place to spend the night in crowded Bethlehem for the census. In a kitten, a small and surprising guide, Myriam sees a sign from heaven, to lead them to safety in the place where the child king will be born. Their story is intertwined with the events of Hinnenì, of humble origins but with a big heart, and with the journey of a strange group: a Zoroastrian priest and a Persian minister accompanied by his faithful guard. All three, each for a different reason, are following a mysterious star. A little boy also travels with them, the minister’s son, who has been dumb since birth. Will the star know how to lead them on their way? Will it take them to the desired destination? Will they meet the child king?
