The innocents gathers six short stories whose main characters are children. The rural landscape is present in some of them, in others, the surroundings fade away and the scenes could be taking place anywhere. But that place is always the childhood.

A geography which is, most of the times, hostile: it is not childhood a lightsome territory where little boys and girls can go around without taking precautions. Quite the opposite: sometimes childhood is a hill of thorns and you have to be very brave, like only a boy or a girl can be, to make it alive to the other side.

Sacrificed animals, imaginary friends, tedious stays at the hospital, UFOs, crackpots, careless adults and religion are some of the topics that fill these short stories.
