Additional Information

Together with his lonely helicopter-mum, twelve-year old Marco lives in Staten Island. After the divorce of his parents, his mother decides to leave busy and buzzling New York City and move back to the place where she was born and grew up. Things become complicated when Marco’s Italian-born grandfather “Nonno” accidentally burns down his own house and has to move in with Marco and his mother. Marco becomes more and more torn between two words: his absentee father’s and the real world of his grandfather. The ideas of technology-obsessed Marco (iPad, google home, games) subsequently collide with Nonno’s unrelenting opposition towards technological items. The grandfather stands for traditional values, which are expressed in his love for the game of Bocce. In the end, Marco is able to resolve the conflict with his grandfather despite a sad event and is finally ready to connect with other people and make friends.
