The film is based on a true story. One day, a good natured stray dog by the name of Italo, wanders into the small Sicilian town of Scicli. But Italo’s arrival causes a terrible uproar in the village, everyone there is fiercely opposed to having stray dogs around. Everyone... except Meno, a precociously wise 10 year-old, who is as lonely and introverted as can be. Since his mother passed away Meno has shut everyone out. Italo can give to force Meno out of his shell, leading him into a series of adventures that will teach him the difference between acting like a grown up and actually becoming one.
