Maurizio grew up in the poorest outskirts of Reggio Calabria. He argues with spiteful hens, speaks to wise donkeys and follows his dream to play the snare drum in a band. He's a headstrong little boy and has solitary adventures by the creek, a place where people dump the things they no longer need. Maurizio has transformed that dumping ground into his own playground and there, amongst the carcasses of cars he finds a drum. The first person to which Maurizio confides his passion for music is his donkey friend Moses. Moses is always ready to advise and encourage him, the total opposite of N'Giulina, the hen who constantly teases him, magnifying his fears and painting his dreams as useless fantasies.
