A trip to Paraguay to document the story of the traveling puppet theatre that his father started in the 1970s, leads the filmmaker on a nostalgic trip in which he reacquaints himself with the puppets of his childhood. Creatively using archival footage, photographs and insightful interviews, this film is an homage to an artist and his work--the filmmakers' father and an extended family of artists--who live and work in one of South America's poorest and lesser known countries. It celebrates the creativity and passion of artists and reminds us why the magic of puppetry is universal and timeless.
