After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a kind police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. Zucchini struggles at first to find his place in this strange, at times hostile, environment. Yet with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust, find true love and, at last, a new family of his own.
