In the face of  great sacrifice, two Los Angeles Puppeteers refuse to give up their insatiable passion for their Art.
This short documentary peeks into the lives of two Los Angeles based puppeteers, Cain Carias and Gary Jones, who have dedicated their lives to their craft. Both men - Cain near the beginning of his career, Gary nearing its conclusion - seek validation and purpose in a world that seems to be leaving this ancient art form behind. As men of color, the two craftsmen yearn to use their art as a voice for their people. While they sometimes struggle to make the life of an artist work, they find humor, joy and ultimately peace when performing for an audience.
