A mother sat by her little child. She was so sad, so afraid he would die. Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale is a timeless story about human despair and final acceptance of God’s will. Set in a suburban concrete desert, this puppet adaptation has chosen a stark interpretation of the classic fairy tale.
