The Motion of Puppets
A modern take on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, The Motion of Puppets (2016) is a love story...with puppets. In the Old City of Québec, Kay Harper falls in love with a puppet in the window of the Quatre Mains, a toy shop that is never open. Late one night, she slips inside the Quatre Mains and is transformed into a puppet. The only way she can return to the human world is if her husband Theo can find her. So begins the dual odyssey of The Motion of Puppets: of a husband determined to find his wife, and of a woman trapped in a magical world where her life is not her own.
