Dubbed an “urban Western,” Dogman takes place in an Italian suburb somewhere between metropolis and wild nature. „Dogman“ is the name of a pet grooming shop and also the tragic prediction of the main character’s metamorphosis from man to animal. Based on a true story that took place 30 years ago and of which nobody will ever know the truth, Dogman digs deep into the human dilemmas of the violence hidden inside each one of us. Marcello, our main character, finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simone, a former violent boxer who terrorizes the entire neighborhood. In an effort to reaffirm his dignity after he was in prison for a year because of Simone, Marcello will submit to an unexpected act of vengeance.
