Animated feature film (72:00 min)


Vitello lives with his Mom in a small terraced house next to the ring road. In many ways being Vitello is totally okay. He gets plenty of spaghetti with butter and grated cheese. He has his annoying friends Max and Hasse. And he is friends with William, the brat.


There is only one problem. Vitello doesn’t have a dad. Well – of course he has a dad – Vitello just doesn’t know who he is. Mum is no help. She just says ‘He’s a scoundrel’. End of story. But that isn’t enough for Vitello, so he sets out in search of a father, only to find someone he isn’t quite expecting…
