Synopsis

1970. Mirco is a child in love with cinema. He loses his eyesight in an accident. At that time, the law does not allow blind people to attend public school. His parents are forced to send him to an institution. Here, the boy finds an old tape player and discovers that in slicing up the tape and piecing it back together and using only the sounds, he can create fairy tales. As the people at the institute try and stop him from pursuing his hobby, Mirco will gradually convince the other blind children to discover their own talents. The true story of Mirco Mencacci, one of the most renown sound editors in Italian cinema.
