This film depicts the hustle and bustle behind the scenes at a puppet theater, as the puppets are created, sets built, costumes and wigs designed and sewn. During rehearsals, the many talented Takeshi Hoshino demonstrates his acting techniques, in which voice and movement play a major part. The film ends with a performance in the midst of a public market, as both children and adults watch with fascination and delight. (IFF catalog)
