She tries to find her friends and is lured out by the Black Cat. Buttercup gets lost and taken by the rag-monster to be imprisoned by the Head in the Land of Evil. Grandma throws away plasticize Laurent. Teddy Bear and Sir Handsome set off to rescue Buttercup. Madam Curie is a communist mouse who organizes the masses to battle the Land of Evil.
This is visually imaginative and unique. The story is straight-forward. The material looks like stuff found under the couch. It has a grotesque amateur beauty. I don't think the story is anything special. It's Toy Story with less fun. The characters are interesting but lacks charisma due to the stiff facial expressions. This is a fascinating attempt.
