Pino is 11 years old, he is a child like many others but unlike his peers he has always lived alone. Due to a hereditary disease that puts his life at risk, he is confined to his large villa where he lives under a glass dome, far from the world that he can only observe through a window. But despite his imagination and the colorful fun fair of his room, Pino can only dream of living a life like the other boys and joining the Snerd, a ramshackle group of friends, joined at the hip, who ride their fast bikes through the streets of the town. Everything changes after the unexpected encounter with the charismatic Mavi, the leader of the group, who puts him to the test by offering him the chance to be part of the Snerd and help them compete with the opposing Band. Animated by courage and an unbridled desire for adventure and freedom, the boy embarks on the road to emancipation, testing his frailties and the rigid rules of Nonna Helena – intent on asserting her beliefs about the fate of her grandson – and of his overprotective parents, subjected to despotic grandmother. There will be trouble and, helped by his new friends, Mavi, Ciccio, Mei and Domenico, he will have to decide to engage in his personal and fundamental battle to prove that he deserves a life just like any other boy.
