Tuscany. 1970. Mirco is a ten year old boy in love with cinema. Following an accident he loses sight. The Italian law of the time considered blind kids handicapped and still did not allowed them into public schools. His parents are thus forced to put him into a blind kids institution. But when Mirco finds an old tape recorder, he discovers that, by cutting the tape and splicing it back together, he is able to create little fairy tales made only of sounds. The conservative institution tries to stop him, but he continues his hobby in every way slowly involving all the other blind kids and helping them re-discover their potential and their dreams.
