The Story
Sipple Silver
A travelling circus arrives in the town of Dukonoo led by Silver the Ring leader and backed up by a tom puss - the sinister Tooth. The circus folk entice the villagers with gambling, drink and other activities. Despite the warnings of Lady - the village mystic and Mikey the progressive young farmer, the villagers waste their money without a care.

Things become even more complicated when Tooth takes a liking to Sanna, Lady's daughter, and bewitches her. Silver who has also been under Tooth's control is horrified when he realises that Tooth's latest conquest is in fact his daughter whom he has not seen in twenty years.

Silver, asks Lady to help him free Sanna from Tooth's grasp, and Mikey - worried about his girlfriend joins in the fight as well. However, Tooth's power proves to be too strong for Lady and she has to call for help from other worldly spirits. Once again with Silver and Mikey's assistance and her "magic powder" Lady is able to free Sanna and chase Tooth out of town.
