A sensitive boy is raised by a lonely and hard working mother somewhere in a far province, where life revolves around daily, inveterate habits. The young boy is being deceitfully seduced by a shady “master” and cynical collector of keys. In consequence of the mystery and rather incomprehensible events, the world of his unconcerned childhood falls apart. The boy gets lost on his way back home while his concerned mother embarks upon a desperate attempt to find her little son.

Film notes

“Toto”, a kaleidoscope of events filled to the brim with suspense and awe, is an universal story of naivete and irreversibly lost infant dreams.

If we lack the word to name the phenomenon, we don’t know precisely what happened.
