PLOT : Set against the vibrant backdrop of 1970s Naples, nine-year-old Peppino Sansone grapples with the upheavals of his tumultuous family life. Peppino divides his days between the vibrant world of his ultra-modern aunt and uncle, Titina and Salvatore, and the sombre atmosphere of his own home. Forced to move in with his Aunt and Uncle, Salvatore and Titina, due to his mother's worsening depression, Peppino finds solace in his older cousin Gennaro, who believes he's Superman. However, tragedy strikes when Gennaro unexpectedly dies, leaving Peppino to cope with grief and loneliness. In his sorrow, Peppino retreats into a fantasy world where he rewrites reality, bringing Gennaro back to life. Through this imaginative journey, Peppino confronts the challenges of adulthood and finds resilience amidst the chaos of his surroundings.
