Vitello is a boy with lots of appetite, energy and drive. He lives alone with his mum in a town house. Vitello is not the type who gets bored easily. He has friends, the mall and lots of great ideas to be tested and examined – life is okay! But Vitello misses having a dad in his life. He doesn't know his dad and his mum isn't a great help there. So Vitello goes out to search for one.
