This is a documentary on Chen Xihuang, the eldest son of the renowned Budaixi puppet master, Li Tianlu. Budaixi is a traditional art form of Chinese opera using hand puppets. Chen began his training in puppetry with the family troupe at an early age, but for complicated reasons, did not inherit the troupe when his father passed away. Now aged 80, Chen then joined another theatre company as the principal puppeteer. Witness how his efforts to revive a fading traditional art have successfully brought Taiwanese glove puppetry to an international stage.
