The Fantasticks tells the story of a young man and the girl next door, whose parents have built a wall on the pretext of keeping them apart. The youngsters nevertheless contrive to meet and fall in love. Their parents, who have actually been scheming to bring their children together, built the wall and staged a feud in order to achieve a marriage between their willfully disobedient children. As a carnival arrives to bring some excitement to the sleepy village, the fathers persuade a mysterious interloper named El Gallo to stage a mock abduction of Luisa hoping that Matt will come to her rescue. The abductor pretends to fall before the onslaught of the young man, letting the boy think he is a hero when he rescues the girl from a band of villains. The night is full of moonlight and romance.
