Jack has a brother, Gio, who has Down syndrome. As a child, Jack believed the lie his parents told him, that Gio was a special being with superpowers, as in a comic book. Now that he is about to go to high school, Jack no longer believes that his brother is a superhero, in fact, he is almost ashamed of him, especially since he met Arianna, the first love of his life. Jack cannot allow himself to make any gaffes of bad impressions with the girl of his dreams and looking after his little brother and his unpredictable behaviour soon becomes a burden. But you cannot be loved by someone as you are, if you cannot love someone despite his faults.

"/…/ The reason why I personally love this novel is that it is fundamentally a story about friendship: that between Jack and his brother Gio. This genre, which could be defined in some ways as a buddy movie, is very much in tune with my sensibilities. Unconventional friendships are what attracts me the most and stimulates me to analyse human relationships."

Titina was a real dog who led an extra ordinary life, taking her from a harsh existence in Rome’s back alleys to a lofty view over the North Pole. Inspired by true events, the film works on different levels to make it enjoyable for both children and adults.
