"Days of Antonio" is based on a true story that took place in 1916 in Veredo, a small town near Milan, Italy. Antonio, a disabled boy, born with one leg shorter than the other in a poor peasant's family, is locked by his parents in a roost to live with the chickens and to be shown off from time to time like a circus attraction. He grows up with the hens, identifying himself with the king of the henhouse, the rooster.
At the age of fifteen his parents catch him with a prostitute and decide to lock him in an insane asylum. "Days of Antonio" starts the day the unlucky boy is admitted into the asylum, where he finds out the truth: he's not an animal and will never be a human being.
