LIFE ACCORDING TO NINO
The sudden death of his mum turns 8-year-old Nino’s life upside down. With his dad suffering from depression and his big brother in a street gang, Nino is left to his own devices. But Nino has a special talent: he can talk to animals. His pet rabbit Bobby offers him comfort, but when will Nino get his family back?.
