Lonely toy-maker Geppetto wishes his child-sized puppet Pinocchio were a real boy so he could finally have the son he’s always wanted. One night, a kind fairy grants Geppetto’s wish and brings Pinocchio to life. However, his darling child seems to be getting into some sticky situation. Loving Geppetto doesn’t give up on his wooden ward and Pinocchio’s dream of being a real boy.
