In the far away kingdom of Karamel, Gus wants to become the greatest, most famous knight of all time. With his laser sword and electric pony, Gus never misses an opportunity for adventure with his friends. His quests lead him to fight witches, dragons and the evil Shadow Knight.
Iris, his super-tall magician sister is always by his side. She’s a real Modern Princess and the most popular girl in the kingdom. And although being itsy bitsy may seem like an obstacle to becoming a real knight, Gus’ valiant heart and great virtues allow him to overcome any adversity.
