A beautiful and haunting imagining of the years Geppetto spends within the belly of a sea beast. Drawing upon the Pinocchio story while creating something entirely his own, Carey tells an unforgettable tale of fatherly love and loss, pride and regret, and of the sustaining power of art and imagination.

In 1761, a tiny, odd-looking girl named Marie is born in a village in Switzerland. After the death of her parents, she is apprenticed to an eccentric wax sculptor and whisked off to Revolutionary Paris. Here they convert an abandoned monkey house into an exhibition hall for wax heads, and the spectacle becomes a sensation, and 'Little' transforms herself into the legendary Madame Tussaud.
