Each episode is told from the point of view of one of the eight protagonists, who becomes the narrator and offers the spectators a sort of personal diary with his gaze on the events of the class: the children will speak directly to the spectator showing their feelings without filters. In this way, from one episode to another, the stories of Pietro, Livia, Isabel, Daniele, Monica, Giulio, Mirko and Arianna intertwine in a choral story capable of restoring the different facets of the life of pre-adolescents: it is the story of a delicate age in which the individualities of children blossom and at the same time their group identity grows.
