Dubbed an “urban Western,” Dogman takes place in an Italian suburb somewhere between metropolis and wild nature. Marcello is a simple man, whose life revolves around his grooming salon for dogs and his daughter Sofia; Simoncino is a former boxer with violent ways just released from prison. Marcello finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simoncino, who terrorizes the entire neighborhood. In an effort to reaffirm his dignity, Marcello will submit to an unexpected act of vengeance.
