Matteo is a nine-year-old boy obsessed with Il Tigre, a local wrestler from his suburb of Rome. He fashions a mask just like his heroís and refuses to take it off. He wears it to sleep, when he bathes, and even at school. What seems like a childish tantrum is really a cry for help that the adults in his life donít seem to hear. Watching his champion in action inspires him to take action on his own.
