Review: Leo and his three friends run away from the orphanage, but life isn't all that much better now and the boys are barely surviving on Leo’s ability as a gifted pickpocket. Then Leo finds out one of the boys is betraying him. To make his break from the group, he accepts an apprenticeship with a magician who is staging a comeback by using a wondrous machine called the Bullet Catch. When the magician's rival dies in London while performing with the Bullet Catch, Leo starts to realize being an apprentice to the magician might be more dangerous that being a pickpocket on the streets.
