Zucchini is a little boy who, after the death of his mother, ends up in an orphanage by an unfortunate accident. Surrounded by other lonely children, he searches to no avail for somewhere to belong. With the arrival of a new girl called Camille, however, things take a dramatic turn and the children soon learn that adversity is easier overcome with a friend’s help.
