Paolo is twelve years old, Donato is his special ed teacher. They meet in seventh grade. Their shared passion for cinema leads them to a special project: a documentary about themselves, a story inspired by instinct, improvisation and natural inclination captured during school daily routines.
There’s Something About Paolo represents a pedagogical journey, where reality and fiction blend together and become the educational means through which we discover a little more about ourselves and the world.
