This puppet animation film is based on the director\'s own experiences. In childhood when the world still looks like a place filled with dreams and hope, a sudden incident leaves a little girl with great sadness. Strangely, what collides with her sadness are a collection of puppets, seemingly too prim and precise, yet kitschy, and the set they play in. The realistic but also utterly contrived space for the puppets feels like a world where time has stopped. Perhaps it presents a time and place that the director refuses to abandon. (Kim Joon-yang)
