A lovely puppet adaptation of the beloved fairytale, “Beauty and The Beast”.
An old merchant picks a lovely flower for his darling daughter Ophelia on his way back home. The flower turns out to belong to a fierce monster’s garden, and the merchant is confronted by the beast. The merchant is promised freedom if he can find a replacement to live with the beast in his castle. Brave Ophelia volunteers to protect her father. She soon discovers that inside the beast’s frightful shell, there is a gentle and lonely soul.
