    • Synopsis
    • Tito is a shy 10 year old kid who lives in a huge city. He has two great friends, the charming Sarah, a friend since they were babies, and Buiu, a boy who is even shier than him.

      Tito’s father, Dr. Rufus, is an inventor who researches the power of birds singing. He left home when Tito was 6 years old – something that we see in the beginning of the movie.

      Tito lives with his mother Rosa, a woman who is completely paranoid about mostly imaginary dangers in the city. Tito develops a special relationship with the pigeons his father left behind. When he was younger, the house was always full of pigeons, and this was the source of constant fights between Rosa and Dr. Rufus.

      Tito follows in his father’s foot-steps and begins inventing all kinds of things. In the invention fair at school, he presents a machine similar to the one he saw his father build before he left.

      His invention doesn’t come out quite as expected. The machine breaks and the birds fly away causing a big commotion in school, which leads to Tito's unexpected popularity with the “cool” kids in school.

      In the background and bit by bit, the film slowly reveals a strange epidemic that is beginning to spread: people start to get sick if they are suddenly scared. The scare epidemic spreads exponentially, eventually hitting most of the world – but not our heroes!

      When his mother and his best friend Buiu start to show symptoms of the epidemic, Tito sets on a search for the antidote with the help of Sarah and some other kids. The secret of the antidote seems to be somewhere in Dr. Rufus’ researches and Tito may be the only one able to put an end to it.
