Maurizio is a headstrong little boy, who grew up living out a thousand solitary adventures by the creek which Maurizio has transformed from a dumping ground into his own playground. There, his dream of playing in the neighborhood band develops. Maurizio starts to take music lessons with other children in the local band, but is soon the only one left without a musical instrument. His mother Rosa sees music as yet another luxury that the family cannot afford. But Maurizio knows that if he wants to realize his dream he must be determined until the end. E’ la storia di Maurizio, un bambino caparbio, cresciuto nella fiumara, un piccolo ruscello quasi sempre asciutto dove la gente butta quello che non gli serve più. Maurizio ha fatto di quella discarica il suo magico parco giochi, ed è lì che matura il sogno di far parte della banda musicale del paese. Maurizio inizia a seguire le lezioni nella banda del paese ma presto resta l’unico senza strumento musicale. Tra i buoni consigli del suo asino Mosé e i dispetti della gallina N’Giulina, si moltiplicano le avventure alla ricerca del suo nuovo strumento.
