PLOT : Anselmo is very special; despite being an adult, he still likes to look at world with the eyes of a kid, turning the sometimes harsh reality into a pure and innocent dream. Superheroes are his inspiration since he was a little child and, after his dad left him to “save the world”, or at least that’s what Anselmo likes to tell himself, he decides to follow his father’s steps and become a modern hero too. Thanks to the faithful encounter with a Titti, a little girl who he quickly grows affectionate to, and the local blacksmith, who provides him with a copper suit, he starts pursuing his dream of fighting crime and becoming a superhero.
