After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is sent to a foster home with other orphans his age. On the way there he befriends a police officer Raymond who will help him, together with his newfound friends in the foster home, to learn the meaning of trust and true love. Even though the new environment seems strange and not so friendly in the beginning, Zucchini will soon find a piece of happiness in the place where he doesn’t expect it.
