A boy born the size of a small doll is kidnapped by a genetic lab and must find a way back to his father in this inventive adventure filmed using stop motion animation techniques. Tom meets a variety of strange creatures and eventually discovers a race of miniature humans like himself. VIEWER COMMENT: "I came upon this in the library and have since bought and given it several times. A combination of claymation and stop action, this is a magical world of strange creatures and laboratories, of tiny people you fall in love with, and evildoers who cannot win in the end. Imagine City of Lost Children, blended with a bit of the Popeye movie and Peewee's playhouse... it's absorbing and complex, taking you to worlds within worlds. And the soundtrack... noises, pings, music and mutterings, the soundtrack could stand on its own as an atmospheric soundscape. Why is this movie not known? See it."
