Tixi and Moxo is a children's show about a little Italian girl who is off school sick. Whilst in the process of doing her English homework, her favourite comic book characters magically come to life and start speaking English. Suddenly the little girl speaks English too but can't decide which of the characters is good and which is evil. It's an interactive show perfomed in English by Italian actors who play with the different sounds between English and Italian. It's a funny piece about good and evil, honesty and truth, with a surprise ending.
