Deep in ocean, “sea monsters” live, having formed their own society and remaining hidden from humans. Luca Paguro is a teenage sea monster in the depths off the coast of the Italian city of Portorosso. His primary chore of the day is to herd goatfish. He is secretly curious about the land, the people and the objects, but keeps himself from exploring as he knows it would only make his parents mad and fearful. That is, until he meets Alberto, another sea monster who proudly claims that he’s been living alone on land for quite some time and knows all about surviving out of the water. And he reveals an amazing secret: Sea monsters can transform into human form once they become dry. But even a splash of water turns their skin back into scales.  
Together, Luca and Alberto decide to venture into the human town where they enjoy eating gelato and pasta and gaze at the stars during the night with their new friend Giulia. Meanwhile, Luca’s parents arrive in the town and frantically search for their son.
