Plot summary

What is Luca movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Luca" movie plot summary.

Luca Paguro (Jacob Tremblay) is a pre-teen sea monster living on the coast of the Italian city of Portorosso and spends his days herding a school of fish. His parents, mother Daniela (Maya Rudolph) and father Lorenzo, restrict him from going to the surface in fear that a human might kill him, but this restriction ends up making Luca (Deyvi Stib Rodríguez) feel bored. One day, when being conflicted about going to the surface or not, he meets another young sea monster named Alberto Scorfano (Jack Dylan Grazer), who has been on land many times on a small island near Portorosso and when he eggs Luca to follow him, Luca discovers that he and Alberto can transform into humans when they get dry on land. They go to Alberto's hideout in a small tower on the island full of human collectables and Alberto claims that he lives with father. Luca finds a poster in the hideout showing a Vespa, an Italian scooter, and they soon decide to spend the next few days making one out of scratch all while Luca tries to keep his now double-life a secret from his parents with only his grandmother being clued in and keeping it a secret.
Soon however, Lorenzo and Daniela discover what Luca has been doing and decide that Luca should be sent deeper into the ocean to live with his distant relative, Uncle Ugo (Sacha Baron Cohen). Distraught, Luca runs away to the surface with Alberto and together, they go to Portorosso where they soon earn the ire of local bully, and repeat champion of the Portorosso Cup Race, Ercole Visconti (Saverio Raimondo). Just as Ercole is about to dunk Luca's head into a fountain (which would expose his identity as a sea monster), they are soon saved by a young girl named Giulia Marcovaldo (Emma Berman) and she takes them to her house where she lives with her one-handed father Massimo (Marco Barricelli), who is an expert fish hunter and is seeking to kill a sea monster, much to their fear. Meanwhile, Daniela and Lorenzo can't find Luca anywhere and they soon decide to go up to the surface to find him.
