A small theater in a rundown part of town is owned by an eccentric old man. The headline attraction is a robotic ballet dancer, but this spectacle has seen better days. A series of crimes that unfold over three acts, this stunning, German-Expressionist silent film-influenced animated work is the latest from Jenna Jaillet (Jennifer Rae Bors, Student Oscar®-winner for “Departure of Love,” FFF 2011).
