Editors Note
Note Stop-motion animation and pixelation of live human actors brings this dark, twisted tale to life. In a grim future of gritty slums a poor couple's tiny child is stolen by evil government scientists. Once in their laboratory he and other tiny people stage a revolution against the sadistic giants. Music by Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, Startled Insects and Sheep on Drugs.
Plot Summary
Summary Not the traditional fairy tale, but an original story that makes use of familiar folk themes and characters -- always giving them a modern, technological twist.| Tom Thumb is a tiny mutant creature born to full-size parents after an accident in an experimental sperm bank. But his happy life is destroyed when the "big people" kidnap him in hopes of using him as a research guinea pig.| But Tom will not give in to their wishes... and even small, small creatures can find a way to subvert those more powerful than them.
