Ettore is a common kid: he likes Rome, playing soccer, sharing time with his classmates. His father Gianmarco is a bit ‘gruff, a alpha male, a real tough guy. We meet them while they are in the car going to see the Roma/Lazio soccer derby. Ettore is wearing a female superhero dress, light blue. When they finally arrive at their destination, we see Ettore performing an amazing performance, until it is abruptly interrupted by a fat woman with a white nurse uniform. Then, we realise that we are not in a theatre, but in a hospital room. In front of Ettore there is Lucia, a friend of him who is about to take a surgery.
