Tiger Boy

Directed by Gabriele Mainetti
Italy, 2012
Drama, Short

Synopsis

Matteo, a nine year old kid, designs a mask identical to that of his hero: a wrestler of a Roman suburb called The Tiger. Once the mask is on, Matteo never takes it off. What simply appears as a tantrum is in reality a call for help that nobody seems to hear.
