Overview: A King's suicide note tasks his heir to make peace with the Zariths, but when the King's brother finds the note first, he convinces the boy that the Zariths are his fathers murderers. Prince Hal seeks out vengeance by finding the Zarith leader.
It's different yes, in the way that Team America: World Police is different.
But here, the marionettes are indeed bound to the heavens by their string, and their culture is rich in the truth that is what they are.
As plots go, it's a coming of age meets medieval war adventure. The story is of a king who kills himself, cutting his headstring, leaving the throne to his son so that he may make peace with their long standing enemies. In the meantime the King's evil brother hides the suicide note from the heir and connives him to start an all-out war. Henchmen, cross and double-cross are the order of the day, all with the occasional neat reminder that these people are wooden, stringed creatures, including the odd pun, though never enough to fall under the 'family film pun' zone.
If you're into original, neat, avant-garde film, you'll really get a kick out of this.
But you'd better be into marionettes.
