Almost no one comes to visit the failing “Theater of Joy” anymore. The puppets in the ensemble find themselves distraught and fearing for their careers, but their impresario has a genius plan: he wants to kidnap Kalle, the star of the show, and ask for ransom in order to pay the theater’s debts. Unfortunately, Kalle proves to be a problematic victim and turns the ingenious plan into chaos. When Kalle disappears, his friends set out to save him from his kidnappers at any cost.
