After a long and tiring week of work, Mr. Rossi returns home to his home where the dog Gastone awaits him, who after a week of solitude wants to go out, run and go to the cinema. Yes, because Gastone's heroes are those of the screen, television and literature and it is in these characters that the dog imagines his master. We will then see a Rossitarzan, a Rossi-astronaut, Rossi-Holmes, Rossi-Zorro, Rossi-scientist, Rossi-Lancelot, Rossi-Aladino and Rossi-Hollywood actor. But once the dreams are over, for Rossi there will be a sad return to the mediocrity of his life.
