Being invisible is the real power. Zero, the new Netflix original series, coming April 21st, tells the story of a shy African-origin boy with an extraordinary superpower: becoming invisible. Not a superhero, but a modern hero who learns about his powers when the Barrio, the district of the Milan suburb from which he wanted to escape, is in danger. Zero will have to wear the uncomfortable clothes of a hero, despite himself and, in his adventure, he will discover the friendship of Sharif, Inno, Momo, and Sara, and perhaps even love.
First-ever scripted series to platform the black Italian experience, said its writer, Antonio Dikele Distefano. The aim is to create what the streaming giant describes as an original and unique exploration of the rich and diverse world of underrepresented cultures in Milanese suburbs, with rap elements.
