Petit Indi

Little Indi

 
17 year old Arnau is living in his own world on the outskirts of the city of Barcelona. Surrounded by nature, he dedicates himself to his true passion: songbird competitions. He also rescues a wounded fox he finds by the riverside. With these companions, Arnau feels totally prepared to face what life can throw at him. When his prized goldfinch wins the championship of Catalonia, he starts saving money to hire a hotshot lawyer so he can help his mother. Meanwhile, his uncle Ramon is a real character and Arnau enjoys spending his summer days hanging out with him. Especially when he takes him to the dog track and teaches him all the tricks.
