Meñique is the story of a small peasant who wants to lift his family out of poverty. A plague of insects that destroys the crops of the field where he lives and an encounter with the Mirror of the Better Half are the events that mark the beginning of his adventures. The Mirror reveals to Meñique who is the woman of his dreams and urges him to follow his brothers, Pablo and Pedro, to the city.

On their way to the city, Meñique and his brothers learn that an enormous enchanted tree keeps the King’s Palace in the darkness and without water, and that the monarch has promised to confer the marquis title and marry his daughter, princess Rocío, to the person who manages to cut the tree and open a well. And Meñique is surprised to find out that the princess is the ‘better half’ that the magic mirror had showed to him.

But he does not know that the giant tree that covers the palace has been created by the witch Maruxa. She seeks revenge on the king stealing the treasure that he hides in a huge strongbox and marrying her son, Froilán, to the princess. Our small boy will become an obstacle to her wicked intentions.

Before reaching his destination, our hero will face an enchanted forest where he will have to obtain three magic objects: Hachibaldo the axe, Picoretto the pick and the walnut-shaped fountain named Lady Stream. And the magic mirror will be the one to teach Meñique how to use his intelligence to overcome any obstacles.

Around the city, a huge slum is home to the poor. And a mysterious thief steals in the palace to distribute the booty among the inhabitants of the slum. She will also steal Meñique’s heart and this will question the prediction of the Mirror of the Better Half.

Finally our small hero will triumph in the enterprise of cutting the tree, opening the well, beating a giant, defeating the witch and conquering his sweetheart. All thanks to the help of his magic friends and because he finally learns that ‘knowledge is stronger than force.’
