Synopsis / Plot
Peppino (Mahieux) is an aging taxidermist constantly ridiculed for being short and somewhat creepy. He meets Valerio (Manzillo), a handsome young man fascinated by Peppino's work. Peppino, in turn, becomes entranced by Valerio and offers him a large salary to come work as his assistant. But when Valerio meets Deborah (Rocchetti), their fledgling romance is threatened by an insanely jealous third wheel.
