In a fairy tale land, living puppets jostle for control of the kingdom after a monarch's death. Old emperor Hebelon commits suicide so son Hal can ascend to the throne. But Hal's scheming uncle Nezo and his henchman tell Hal his father has been killed by the Zeriths, nomadic warriors who had their homeland usurped by the denizens of Hebelon, in order to send him on a suicide mission to avenge his dad, leaving Nezo clear to take the throne. All the while, the timber-and-stone race acknowledge the ropes leading out of their bodies into infinity and carve their children out of wood.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nightmarish adult fantasy set in a shadowy underworld where rain is frequent, court intrigue is rife & marionettes dangle from black wires as if undergoing daily crucifixion."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Some would call it simplistic and silly; I think it's fairly clever and actually a little bit sweet. But hey, I've always had a soft spot for a good puppet show."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"Visually stunning and brimming with invention, although the plot is probably too confusing for its target audience"
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
