An 11-year-old Michi lives in a children’s home till the day he finds his real dad Tom who happens to be a dwarf, even shorter than Michi is, the opposite of his idea of manliness and strength. When the kids find out, Michi’s life becomes hell and he flees. With nowhere to go, he moves in with Tom and tries to hide his embarrassment and shame from his fellow school kids. As time passes, they discover they have more in common than other sons and fathers, until their relationship is again suddenly put to the hard test...
