A young orphan is raised by his wealthy grandfather in a beautiful mansion in Italy. He is unhappy because he needs the warmth of a real family. The boy is a computer freak and thanks to an ingenious search on his computer discovers that his mother is still alive and living in Argentina (where she fled after a nervous breakdown following the death of her husband in a car crash). Against the wishes of his grandfather the boy sets off in search of his mum in Argentina and he finally finds the warmth he needs. But his mum falls severely ill and the boy's dreams are shattered. Eventually the boy's grandfather rejoins them in Argentina and arranges for the boy's mother to be expensively cured in Switzerland.
