A lonesome puppet experiences freedom for the first time as he breaks away from his marionette strings and enters a library. In spite of other bound puppet’s attempts to hold him back, with determination the hero of Cuerdas en la Vida is able to finally taste independance. With intricately-crafted puppets, sets, and stop-motion animation, this short is a magical look at the liberation that only knowledge can bring.
