There plot revolves around a journey made by Zerocalcare and his two longtime friends, Sarah and Secco. Over the course of the episodes, stories and flashbacks from the life of the protagonist follow one another. The story proceeds from the years of middle school to those of high school, up to return to the present, telling his existence through sarcasm and irony, elements that characterize his character.

During the trip, Zerocalcare tries in every way to distract himself from what his conscience wants to remind him, which is the reason why the three friends are heading by train to the city of Biella.

Who is Zerocalcare
  1. “Tear along the edges” is a series that makes you laugh, of taste, but at the same time it also makes us reflect. If it were a comedy it would certainly be in the style of Luigi Pirandello, but it is a series and above all it is …
  2. It is the first animated series from Netflix, produced entirely in Italy. Finally, we don’t have to take refuge in the United States, Spain or even South Korea to enjoy a television series. “Tear along the edges” it is an Italian product.
  3. It has a noble theme like that offriendship. Who says love is the strongest feeling you can have? Nothing binds more than friendship and this series is proof of that.
  4. Down with politically correct forever! Are you too tired of this rampant hypocrisy? Well, the Zerocalcare series is ‘politically incorrect’. Poetry for my (and I hope also for your) ears.
  5. It is autobiographical. The author lays bare, telling his whole life and everything that distinguishes him without filters.
