Plot

1988. The story of 'Dogman' follows in the footsteps of Pietro De Negri, a cocaine addict who runs a canine hairdresser outside of Rome. However, under this quiet profession lies a dark past. Giancarlo Ricci, a boxer and criminal misuses the protagonist repeatedly. Tired of so much abuse, he conceived a plan to get rid of Giancarlo once and for all and, on February 18, 1988, after convincing him to enter one of the cages he had in his establishment for dogs, he tortured him for seven hours and it provokes vexations, like amputations in various parts of his body. Still today, Italy remembers it as one of the cruelest crimes in its history. The film is set to be released in the UK October 19, 2018.
