After his mother dies, the eight-year old Nino doesn't go to school, doesn't take a bath and eats chips for breakfast. At first it seems great fun, but Nino is missing the attention and affection of his father and brother. When Nino discovers he can talk to animals, he sets matters with his rabbit Bobby.
