Dog Years is written by Mary Stella Brugiati and Alessandro Bosi, and tells the tale of Stella, a self-conscious, cynical and troubled teen with a huge imagination. After a life-changing car accident which also involves a dog, she is convinced that her life should now be counted in dog years – one being the equivalent of seven – and now that her sixteenth birthday is just around the corner, she’s actually going to be one hundred years old. For this reason, Stella believes she doesn’t have much time left to live and decides to draw up a list of all the things she wants to do before she dies. With the help of her best friends Nina and Giulio, the girl begins living her life to the max, tearing through her bucket list for fear of missing out on these experiences. But a chance encounter with Matteo, a shy and introverted boy her age, calls everything into question, turning her perspective upside down.
“We are offering viewers a one-of-a-kind story with comedic tones, which is shot through with tenderness and sensitivity and which speaks directly to young-adult audiences, using their own language”, assures Italy’s Head of Amazon Originals Nicole Morganti.
“We are delighted to be supporting the growing number of titles scripted by Amazon Original in Europe, by way of this very special Italian story”, states Amazon Studios’ Head of European Originals Georgia Brown. “This is a wonderful story, and we hope it turns out to be a must-see movie for Prime Video viewers around the world”.
