A genius, Elvis (13), misunderstood by the world, swears by chemistry, comic books and Hanna, the most beautiful girl at his school. His life completely changes when his parents get a divorce and he finds himself, all of a sudden, sharing his home with women only: his mom, his younger sister and his grandmother. The unexpected family tsunami climaxes with his mother’s news that she is pregnant. In a funny, amusing and dynamic teenage odyssey, Elvis manages to solve all the complications and pickles, to glue back together the pieces of his broken life and to escape towards himself. The film is based on the eponymous best-selling book about a modern-day Slovenian Adrian Mole, for which Janja Vidmar received numerous awards.
