    • Synopsis
    • Zucchini is an intriguing nickname for a 10 year old boy. Although his unique story is surprisingly universal. After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a kind police officer Raymond, who accompanies Zucchini to his new foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first Zucchini struggles to find his place in this strange, at times, hostile environment. Yet with Raymond’s help and his new found friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust, finds true love and at last a new family of his own.
