A little boy, Marcellino, sees his mother die, and follows her to the funeral. A poor street musician, affectionately called by his fellow citizens "the Professor", sees the little Marcellino follow the coffin of his mother, and decides to adopt him, pretending to be his uncle. The two live happily, but one day the real uncle of Marcellino, a greedy and cruel man, discovers the truth about his grandson, and sends Marcellino to the reformatory. Later the uncle forces Marcellino to live with him for doing so begging in the street, but the Professor runs to save his darling.
