Storyline

Matteo, a nine years old kid, builds a mask identical to the one of his hero: a wrestler of a roman suburb called "The Tiger". Once the mask is on, Matteo never wants to take it off. What simply appears as a tantrum is in reality a call for help that nobody seems to hear. Written by Nicola Guaglianone
