    • A crowded street in the heart of Naples, teeming with shops selling elaborate Nativity scenes, beautifully carved Holy Families, grotesque Punchinellos. A tourist couple and their 10 year-old son, Jake try to push their way through the crowd. While his parents quarrel, Jake lags behind, attracted by the carved Punchinellos. And so begins a dreamlike journey between reality and imagination through the most hidden places and symbols of Naples; a city that Terry Gilliam manages to capture with all of its contradiction, danger and magic.
