His life is fairly simple at first: he works hard and gets in fights with his brother, Pino, who is a constant source of anxiety and frustration. Because of Pinos uncanny knack for creating trouble, their rocky relationship and rivalry gets Angelo into hot water over and over.During the summer months when Angelo, Pino, and their father come down to the town of Castrovillari to sell fruit, Angelo meets a gypsy named Petar, which leads Angelo to reconsider the negative attitudes toward gypsies that he has seen and taken for granted for so long, even in his own home.

As a result, Angelo also begins to grasp the complexities of growing up, as well as the importance of building and cementing the bonds of family. When certain influences try to force him to take sides, Angelo comes to realize where his place truly is.
