Charlotte, a young orphan, has made a home for herself thieving on the streets of London. She falls into employment as the assistant to an eccentric Italian puppeteer, Pietro. A master of the violent Punch and Judy puppet show, Pietro becomes a reluctant mentor to Charlotte. The two become an efficient pair under Pietro's gruff and focused attention. Reality blurs as live actors, hand puppets, shadow puppetry and marionettes share the stage to illustrate a dark reality of imperfect adults.
