JUDY & PUNCH

de Mirrah Foulkes

Synopsis

In the odd town of Seaside, everyone is looking forward to the marionette show. Puppeteer Punch insists taking all the credit for it, but he’s nothing more than a drunk; on the other hand, Judy seems to be truly skilled with puppets. Following a tragic accident, Punch brutally beats Judy and leaves her lying half dead out in the woods. When she comes to, she will plan a revenge leading this powerful social satire into the realm of black humor.
