We are not alone.

The idea of a father-and-son holiday in the mountains wouldn't be all that bad, if the goal wasn't... hunting for aliens. Which don't exist, of course! Things change when he meets Claudia. With her, everything is perfect. But then Angelo and Claudia find a gigantic silver egg in the woods. An egg that is no ordinary egg… What if his father wasn't really crazy?

  • As intriguing as The Tommyknockers, as adrenaline-fuelled as Stranger Things, and as nostalgic as Back to the Future and The Goonies.

  • With The Greys, Guido Sgardoli launches Italian science-fiction for children.
