In the outskirts of a seaside Italian village, the only law seems to be survival of the fittest. Marcello is a slight, mild-mannered man whose days consist of working at his modest dog grooming salon, caring for his young daughter, and being coerced into the petty criminal schemes of local bully Simoncino. When Simoncino’s abuse finally brings Marcello to a breaking point, he decides to stand up for his own dignity, but being inexperienced in acts of passion, Marcello’s deeds bring unintended and shocking consequences.

The excellent performance of Marcello Fonte in the lead role won him the Best Actor Award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Based on a true story, Dogman is a visceral and piercing tale of the unbreakable cycle of vengeance begetting vengeance.
