The Nutcracker


We are in a toy factory. Dolls, dolls and soft toys are produced within this factory, many soft toys. A devoted worker loves her profession so much that the factory has become her home, only then can she build her dream toy! Every day after the factory closes when everything is empty: little by little, night after night, she works on her most precious project, the construction of a perfect doll, her companion, her best friend, the ideal man… As usual, at Christmas, the city’s children go to visit the factory. Clara, a very curious girl, runs away from the visiting group and finds the worker’s secret project, a doll so perfect that it looks human. This encounter leads her to imagine herself grown up, living all kinds of adventures with the doll turned human. With it, she will recreate the world of adults through her child’s eyes. A world where everything is possible, where penguins fly, where stuffed animals rain, where there are giant fries, where pillow fights are mandatory, a world where everything has color and where broccoli tastes like peanut butter ice cream.
