In the outskirts of Rome, a giant cake appears in the sky! The authorities and the military respond aggressively to the weird UFO and a battle ensues with the children, who defend the cake. Mangini co-writes this adaptation of a short story by Gianni Rodari, between surrealism and political dissent.
