The View From Down Here

The View From Down Here
A little girl views the world around her with curiosity and wonder. But her idyllic world is peppered with signs of harder times ahead...a world of anderson shelters, rationing, and terrifying gas masks. How will her imagination cope with these new, strange images? Puppetry and nostalgia come together to create a unique view of a bygone era, from a wholly innocent perspective.
