A HIGH-SPEEDED DETECTIVE ADVENTURE: A MISFIT GANG IS IN SEARCH FOR THEIR NEW BEST FRIEND
Pino suffers from haemophilia – after an injury his blood does not stop flowing. Playing outside with other children is out of the question; any accident could endanger his life and homeschooling is an annoying permanent state for him. When he makes friends with a gang of kids, he is overcome by a thirst for adventure. He finally wants to live a normal life. Suddenly, Pino disappears, and the police assumes it as a runaway story. The SNERDs suspect something else. Mavi, Ciccio, Mei Ming and Domenico set out to find their new friend. And so a high-speeded detective story about freedom and friendship unfolds, for which even great risks are worth taking.
