Once again the clowns draw us to the world of Macky B and his Lady. The righteous Macky B is a good man, brave soldier, loyal friend..
and he would have been the same perhaps, if he didn't meet those three weird sisters that night!
He would have been happier.

Sometimes, all you need is a little push- to go to the other side.
Macky B fell!
