Category: Edition 2018

Vitello is a boy with great appetite, energy and drive. He lives alone with his mum in a townhouse next to the ring road. Vitello is not the type who gets easily bored. He has his friends, the center and a lot of great ideas to be tested and examined –life is okay! But Vitello misses having a dad in his life. He does not know his dad and his mum is no great help in this context. Vitello therefore goes in search of one. The feature is based on Kim Fupz Aakeson and Niels Bo Bojesen's popular book series.
