The story of a boy in the fantastical world of puppets
The first boy chases after an illuminated cloud, looking for his father.
The second boy stays in the hospital ward, passing the time by himself.
Their stories take a surprising turn as an illuminated cloud floats by...

Directed by Derrick Wei of Short One Player (Taiwan), The Little Child is a whimsical blend of reality and fantasy. Watch the boys' stories unfold and intertwine as the cloud transform into various shapes and objects in this lyrical dreamscape. Nominated for Taishin Arts Award 2011, this puppet performance was also well-received at Festival Off d'Avignon 2012.
